Indy Council Passes Resolution Opposing Same Sex Marriage Amendment

The Indianapolis city council has passed (22-6) a resolution urging state legislators to vote against the proposed constitutional ban on same sex marriage in Indiana. Indianapolis Republican mayor Greg Ballard supported the council's resolution, even going so far as to sign it before the Democrat-led council had voted on it. A statement by Ballard said
“I understand that many people hold differing views on this subject, but Indiana law already defines marriage, and I don’t see the overriding government interest in adding such an amendment to our state’s constitution. My hope is that we can continue to work ­together and focus on those things that make Indy a place where people want to live, work and raise a family.”
