WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A gay marriage amendment for North Carolina’s Constitution has made headlines this week, but you may not have heard about a failed amendment to that amendment that would have ended marriage licenses in the Tar Heel State.

Speaker of the House Thom Tillis told Chad Adams and ‘The Big Talker FM’ about the vote this morning.

The proposal would have changed the Constitution to say, “Marriage belongs to the dominion of God under the authority of the church. Licensure of marriage is prohibited in the state.”

The amendment, proposed by Republican Rep. Glen Bradley, failed along party lines with most Democrats, including Rep. Susi Hamilton of New Hanover County, voting for it.

Rep. William Brisson, who represents Bladen County, was one of seven Democrats to vote against the measure.
