House Democrats are looking for ways to work the issue into another bill.
Republican and Democratic lawmakers and LGBT advocates agree that the LGBT rights debate won’t end.
Lawmakers and advocacy groups were expecting a public debate in the Senate Tuesday.
Senate President Pro Tem David Long promised last week to bring the bill to the Senate floor for discussion.
Lawmakers take their first pass at LGBT rights legislation, Thursday's Spierer investigation in Martinsville and 30 years ago the film Hoosiers premiered.
The bill that passed is slightly different because of approved amendments.
People testified on both sides of the issue, and no one was supportive of passing the entire bill without adding amendments.
The proposed bill would codify protections from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation but not gender identity.
Two republican LGBT bills will be presented in Senate committee Wednesday afternoon.
Four proposed Senate bills concern giving civil rights protections to members of the LGBT community.
