Evansville City Council has formally filed its resolution opposing House Joint Resolution No. 6.
HJR-6, as it's more commonly known, is the proposed State Constitutional Amendment that would define marriage as exclusively between a man and a woman.
It would also prohibit Indiana Courts from recognizing out-of-state, same-sex marriages – thereby leaving those couples unable to get a divorce.
Councilman Jonathan Weaver, D-At-large, and Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff Riley, D-3rd Ward, sponsored the resolution.
