Statement from Freedom Indiana on Indy Chamber opposition to HJR-6

INDIANAPOLIS — Freedom Indiana campaign manager Megan Robertson issued the following statement in response to the announcement today that the Indy Chamber will join other leaders of Indiana’s corporate community in opposition to HJR-6:

“The Indy Chamber’s decision to oppose HJR-6 comes down to Hoosier common sense: They know it’s bad for business and will hurt our ability to attract new jobs and talent to Indiana.

“We’re pleased to welcome them to the growing bipartisan coalition of parents, lawmakers, faith leaders, business owners and advocates for liberty who are standing together to make sure our state continues moving forward. We launched our campaign with support from Cummins and Eli Lilly and Company, two of Indiana’s largest employers.

“The Indy Chamber represents the voices of hundreds of businesses in Indianapolis and the Central Indiana region, and we look forward to working with them to support Indiana’s economic future by protecting liberty for all Hoosiers.”

Freedom Indiana is a bipartisan statewide organization that champions liberty for all Hoosiers. The organization is opposed to an amendment that would permanently alter the Indiana Constitution to define marriage and could potentially affect hundreds of rights related to marriage under current Indiana law. Freedom Indiana launched in August 2013.
