HJR3 Current Status:
On Monday, January 27, HJR3 was amended in the House on second reading to remove the second sentence. On Tuesday, January 28, it passed in the House on third reading. On Thursday, February 13, the Senate declined to restore the second sentence. It will be voted on on third reading by the Senate during the week of February 17.
If it passes, it will need to be passed again by the Legislature in 2015 or 2016 to go to a popular vote, as it now contains different language than when it was voted on in 2011.
FairTalk is a grassroots group working to achieve full marriage equality for same-sex couples in Indiana by fostering respectful conversations between people on all sides of the issue.
We are currently working to defeat the proposal to write relationship discrimination into the Indiana constitution (HJR3). We hope you will join us in this fight.
