INDIANAPOLIS Gov. Mike Pence is supporting a measure that would place Indiana's ban on gay marriage in the state constitution.

Pence said Wednesday that voters should decide whether Indiana solidifies its ban with a vote in 2014. Legislative leaders said Wednesday they would push ahead with the effort after the Supreme Court handed down a pair of rulings leaving the marriage question with the states.

Pence said he continues to support defining marriage as being between one man and one woman.

If the ban passes the General Assembly next year, it would be placed on the Indiana ballot in 2014.
