Tuesday, local residents will be given an opportunity to participate in a debate on marriage equality.
Bloomington City Council Member Susan Sandberg is sponsoring a resolution, along with Council Members Darryl Neher and Tim Mayer as co-sponsors, supporting marriage equality.
This motion is designed to provide a local response to state legislators’ efforts to include a clause in the state constitution to limit marriage to be between one man and one woman.
Supporters of this effort, which will be presented to state voters during the next voting cycle, say the intent is to outlaw same-sex marriage.
The sponsors of the local resolution have invited the public, along with LBGT leaders and community and business organizations, to discuss how the codification of discrimination in our State Constitution will impact the state economically.
The council meeting will begin at 6 pm in the City Council Chambers in the Showers Building on Morton Street in downtown Bloomington.
The final vote on the local resolution is expected to be presented to the full Bloomington Council by the end of the year.
