CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — Two of the leading speechmakers in last
week’s debate at the North Carolina Legislature over a proposed
statewide referendum on gay marriage will discuss the issue again,
this time in front of some budding lawyers.

House Majority Leader Paul Stam of Apex and Minority Whip Rick
Glazier of Fayetteville will participate Wednesday in an event at
the University of North Carolina law school in Chapel Hill to talk
about the proposed constitutional amendment to prohibit gay
marriage.

Stam was the chief proponent in the House on the amendment that
will be on statewide ballots next May. Glazier opposed the
amendment.

The University of North Carolina Center on the Law and
Government is hosting the midday discussion.
