Third House to resume Saturday

(Continued)

He said legislators take note of the public’s opinions expressed at the meeting and may use the input to make decisions in the Statehouse.

“You can impact the debate on issues,” Daugherty said. “You really can, but it starts with respect.”

Both Wesco and Daugherty expect this week’s action on House Joint Resolution 3, which would put Indiana’s law that recognizes marriage only between a man and woman, on the ballot for a vote to make it a constitutional amendment, to be a topic of discussion.

“I am sure it will come up,” Wesco said, “and my views on the issue are well known. I have always been up front and sincere about my stance.”

Wesco favors the resolution, which he co-sponsored in the House along with Goshen Rep. Wes Culver.

“I think there will probably be people there on both sides of the issue,” Daugherty said. “And I hope they are as respectful as they been in the past. I have no reason to believe they wouldn’t.”
