Rules Committee Sends HJR-3 to the Senate Floor Without Changes

The Senate's Rules and Legislative Procedure Committee voted 8 to 4 to pass HJR-3 on for a vote on the Senate floor with no changes. Though the amendment's second sentence, banning any form of civil union or extension of benefits to same sex couples, was eliminated from the bill by the House and not restored by the Rules Committee. It could be restored on the Senate floor. Read more about the vote from Indiana Public Media here.
