The bill passed the Full House by a 57-40 vote. The measure will now be sent to the Senate.
Monday, the bill's second sentence was changed. It would have banned unions similar to marriage such as civil unions and domestic partnerships.
Reverend Dr. Peter Scaer says he wants the Senate to reinstate the second sentence, adding that this is a step in the right direction.
Cody Tinnel opposes HJR-3. In fact, he spoke to law makers a couple weeks ago voicing his opposition to the bill. He says he is disappointed with the vote.
HJR-3 must pass two more times written as is, meaning if it does pass, voters wouldn't get a change to weigh in until 2016.
