North Carolina GOP introduces bill to snub Supreme Court, make gay marriage and civil union illegal again


Four Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill, HB 780, to try to make gay marriage illegal in North Carolina. The AOL news story is here.

The bill would also make civil unions illegal and seems to deliberately flout the Supreme Court Obergefell ruling.
 
Curiously, I haven’t yet seen the story anywhere else but AOL.



Update: April 13

The bill was called the "Uphold Traditional Marriage Act" but the latest information is that the bill will not be heard (local television report)..
