The Bloomington City Council will address whether to pass a resolution opposing HJR-6, the proposed state constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. A proposed resolution is on the council’s agenda for tonight’s meeting.
“Bloomington benefits economically because it’s a welcoming community in which people want to live, visit, and grow a business,” Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan said in a statement to Freedom Indiana. “HJR-6, in addition to being an unnecessary infringement of basic rights, threatens the business-friendly reputation of Indiana cities.”
Other mayors that spoke out against the amendment include Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight, Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard, and Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard.
