INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is sticking to his support for a proposed state
constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
During a meeting
with reporters Thursday in his Statehouse office, Pence repeatedly said he’s
made himself clear on the issue. He said in an interview on WISH-TV last
week that he wants lawmakers to restore the original language of the
proposed amendment so it would also ban civil unions.
The Indiana House
has approved the proposed amendment after removing the so-called “second
sentence” that bans civil unions.
The measure goes
before the Senate Rules Committee on Monday. If the Senate restores the
second sentence, the House would need to sign off on the change for the
proposed ban to go before Indiana voters in November.
