INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gov. Mike Pence is urging legislative leaders to bring an end to the debate over gay marriage this year.

In a one-on-one interview with our sister station, WISH-TV, the governor also made it clear that he hopes lawmakers restore the second sentence in the marriage amendment — the one that would outlaw civil unions.

That sentence was removed in the Indiana House of Representatives Monday.

“Let me say I support traditional marriage,” said Pence, “and I expressed support for the resolution that the legislature passed during the last session and considered at the outset of this session.”

The governor also said that he will no longer be speaking out on the marriage issue until the legislative session ends.
