GOP Legislative Leaders: Gay Marriage Amendment Not a Priority Now

The top two lawmakers in the Republican-led Indiana General Assembly say a push to write the state’s ban on gay marriage into the state Constitution isn’t a priority for them right now.

House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tem David Long say they’re more focused now on measures to improve job training and boost spending on schools.

Two Republican House lawmakers have introduced resolutions that would send the gay marriage issue to voters in 2014 if  approved by the General Assembly.
