If the second sentence is not restored, the measure cannot go to voters in November. That's because the 2011 General Assembly approved it with the sentence. Under Indiana law, a constitutional amendment must pass two separately elected legislatures in the same form before going to voters.
Senate President Pro Tempore David Long and 15 other senators declined to comment on the second sentence or how they will vote on the amendment with or without the second sentence. Two senators are ill and were not surveyed. They are not expected to vote.

"I'm still torn in all different directions," Boots said. "I didn't analyze it as well as I should have (in 2011)." But he added he does believe in traditional marriage.
An Indianapolis Star survey of the 50 member body this week found 16 said they will oppose adding back the second sentence and 10 mostly Republicans are undecided. Only six senators said they will vote to restore the sentence, which opponents think also would prohibit domestic partner benefits.
But that's likely a long way from happening.

"I think there are a lot of people who think the second sentence goes too far. It's just radically flawed and discriminatory in my opinion" said Senate Minority Leader Tim Lanane, D Anderson. Nike Gray Sweatshirt Womens
"I think there's a good chance the second sentence will not be added back," she said. "Certainly, that's what we hope they'll do. But we prefer the whole thing go away."
"Twelve years is long enough for the issue to be debated in the legislature," said Miller. "Now that we're this close, the legislature needs to put the second sentence back in and let the people vote. It's time to trust the people of Indiana with a vote to define marriage between one man and one woman."
Megan Robertson, campaign director of Freedom Indiana, a coalition opposing HJR 3, also thinks many senators have problems with the second sentence.
Sen. Dennis Kruse, R Auburn, Senate sponsor of HJR 3, said Tuesday he or another Republican senator will introduce a measure to add the second sentence. That is likely to happen today, when the measure is scheduled for a second reading a time when lawmakers can propose changes.
Amendment supporters, including Eric Miller, founder and CEO of Advance America, a conservative, pro family group, wants to avoid a further delay in bringing the vote to the public.
"I'd be surprised if Jackets Adidas Originals they (Republicans) had the votes to restore it."
The Senate may be in the same position as the House was three weeks ago: Eliminate the hotly debated second sentence so the amendment will pass.
Opponents of the amendment say keeping the civil union ban out of the resolution could also clear a path in the Senate, which has 37 Republicans and 13 Democrats. In 2011, the vote was 40 10, with no Republican dissenters.
Sen. Phil Boots, R Crawfordsville, is among those who voted for the amendment in 2011 and are now undecided about the second sentence, as well as the entire amendment.
The Senate's expected action today on House Joint Resolution 3 likely will determine whether the controversial proposal goes to the public for a vote in November or is delayed until at least 2016.
