Wesco on WFRN Radio News

On WFRN News with Reporter Don Wagner:

"The Indiana Senate has overwhelmingly voted for a state constitutional amendment to protect the sanctity of marriage, but it's future in the House is grim. The amendment would define the union of marriage as only between one man and one woman, banning counterfeit marriages and preventing activist judges from overturning our current marriage laws. The vote in the Senate was 38-to-10, but Democrat House Speaker Pat Bauer of South Bend has repeatedly said amending the state's constitution is not necessary, since Indiana law already bans same-sex marriages. WFRN sat down with Mishawaka Republican Timothy Wesco, who's running for Jackie Walorski's soon-to-be vacant House seat and talked about the marriage debate at the Statehouse. Wesco says we need to keep putting pressure on Bauer to allow the House to vote on sending the Marriage Protection Amendment to the voters to decide. 30 states have passed Marriage Protection Amendments, including Michigan."
