NC State Students Pass Resolution Against Marriage Amendment

NC State Students Pass Resolution Against Marriage Amendment


Following an incident of antigay vandalism, student senators at North Carolina State University passed a resolution against the proposed constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

WRAL-TV reports on the resolution that passed Wednesday night in a 29 to 6 vote. A handful of student senators said they would have preferred to poll the student body first.

The resolutions says, "The proposed amendment has vague and untested wording which will result in a significant period of time and state money spent on court cases to determine the meaning of the bill. North Carolina State University Student Government strongly encourages our state legislature to focus on more important matters at hand including stimulating job growth, hurricane relief and education."

A copy of the resolution will be provided to state legislators, according to WRAL-TV. Student senators also passed a separate bill Wednesday that expresses the value of diversity. North Carolinians will vote on the constitutional ban in May.

The resolution came in response to a vandalism incident Monday in which slurs were spray-painted outside the campus LGBT center. Students plan to hold a rally to oppose the vandalism on Thursday.
