DURHAM, N.C. — The Durham City Council has been presented a resolution supporting marriage qeuality in the State of North Carolina.

According to The Durham Herald-Sun and The Raleigh News & Observer, resident Joshua Lee Weaver presented the resolution to the council. The city attorney will review the proposal and make a recommendation at the council’s meeting on April 9.

The towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro have already passed similar resolutions, calling on the state to grant the equal rights, benefits and responsibilities to same-sex couples, as they already do to opposite-sex couples.
