A win for those who don't want a gay marriage ban in the state constitution

Those against the effort to place Indiana's gay marriage ban in the state constitution win a surprising victory, as the Senate effectively delays a statewide vote on the issue for at least two years. In a parliamentary move that spared a vote, the Senate advanced the marriage ban without the "second sentence" ban on civil unions. The House stripped that language from the amendment before passing it last month, and the Senate's decision not to restore the language means the effort to amend the constitution has to start fresh.
