On the House floor Monday evening, Indiana state representatives voted in favor of an amendment to HJR-3 that would strip language that "A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized."

There were 52 votes for the amendment, 43 against and five excused absences.

Twenty-three Republicans joined 29 Democrats to pass the amendment.
