INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Gov. Mike Pence says he hopes the U.S. Supreme Court will uphold Indiana’s right to enact marriage laws when the issue of same-sex unions reaches the high court.

Indiana law defines marriage as between one man and one woman, but the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ruled that law was unconstitutional. The court’s ruling affirmed U.S. District Judge Richard Young’s decision in June to overturn the ban.

The state says it will seek a stay of the ruling pending an appeal to the Supreme Court.

Lawmakers had pushed to amend the ban into the state constitution, but the measure was kept off the November ballot when they changed the language of the proposed amendment during this year’s legislative session.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Democratic Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz says she would like to see the state cover the costs of textbook rentals.

Ritz included the request in her proposed schools budget she submitted to the State Budget Agency on Thursday. She is also asking for a 3 percent increase in education spending.

Indiana is one of eight states to charge families for textbook costs.

Gov. Mike Pence is set to deliver a budget proposal to the General Assembly in January. Pence has typically favored spending and tax cuts over increased spending like Ritz is calling for.

Republican leaders say they strived to protect education from the deep cuts some other agencies faced through the recession. But Democrats still point out that schools took a $300 million hit during the recession.
