NC Marriage Amendment Sponsor: "This Decision Belongs to the People, Not to Me"

 

The Winston-Salem Journal:

Folwell is the speaker pro tem of the N.C. House. The General Assembly will reconvene next week to vote on whether to put a marriage amendment before the voters in 2012.

...Folwell said he left the [town hall] meeting convinced that the ballot is the way to decide the controversy.

"I had a lot of friends in the audience on both sides," he said. "What I took away is that there is no question that this decision belongs to the people and not to me."
