Unable to change year to 1964, IN House Speaker changes committees instead

by Jeremy Hooper

In a truly outrageous move, the Republican speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives has moved that state's proposed pockmark on history (i.e. the same-sex marriage ban) to a new committee solely because he thinks it stands a better chance of passing. This despite the Judiciary Committee already holding a public hearing.

Towle has the dirty deets:

It remains to be seen if the new committee (Elections and Apportionment) will be as favorable to besmirching the state's civil rights legacy as Speaker Bosma thinks it will be. If not, I guess he'll just have to keep shopping around until he finds a body able and willing enough to waste legislative time on discrimination. I think the Family Research Council's online store might sell them.
