The News and Observer reports those legislators frequently file bills that don't get a hearing because House GOP leaders don't support the proposals. Larry Pittman of Concord, Michael Speciale of New Bern and Carl Ford of China Grove say in their proposed legislation that the U. Constitution's states-rights amendment allows North Carolina to decide for itself what its marriage laws should be. "This bill is absurd, unconstitutional and further proof that some North Carolina legislators remain committed to discriminating against LGBT people and their families. Instead of wasting their time on hateful, discriminatory and clearly unconstitutional legislation, they should be working with Governor Cooper to improve our schools and cut taxes for the middle class."The bill would order state government to return to the constitutional amendment known as Amendment One, which was approved in a 2012 voter referendum.
