House panel pivotal in Indiana gay marriage debate

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, cautioned that pressure tactics can occasionally boomerang if groups aren't careful. He pointed to Republican Gov. Mike Pence's troubles lobbying for a proposed income tax cut. After House Republicans passed a budget without the governor's tax cut, Pence supporters began airing ads blasting House Republicans.

"I don't think necessarily television ads during the legislative session are an effective means to change someone's opinion. Particularly on an issue like this," he said. "We saw something much more intense last year on tax policy and, if anything, that effort, I think, made the sides less likely to come together because of some of the things that were said."
