The Evansville City Council took a stand Monday night against a proposed state constitutional amendment that would permanently define marriage as being between a man and a woman.
Some expressed that concern, while others praised the council for taking a stand against what they call discrimination.
The resolution passed by the council simply allows it to take a stand on the issue. It does not change any laws.
Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke also recently spoke out against it.
If lawmakers pass the measure, it will go before voters next November.
