Indiana's Senate Republican Caucus has voted not to consider an initiative that would have proposed amending the state constitution to define marriage as being between a man and a woman.
The vote means the amendment probably will not advance during this legislative session.
In a statement, Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese said, "The Human Rights Campaign is glad to see that this divisive, unnecessary amendment appears to have stalled. We congratulate Indiana Equality, its coalition partners, HRC members and others throughout the state who urged their legislators to reject this resolution."
Indiana Equality Action Vice-President Randy Studt said, "Indiana Equality is glad to see that the Senate has finally decided this issue is unworthy of their time, after passing a similar measure on four occasions. We appreciate the calls and emails by our supporters to help defeat this measure."
