RALEIGH, NC (WECT) - Lawmakers in Raleigh could talk about banning gay marriage in North Carolina.

A bill to introduce possible constitutional amendments is on a committee agenda for Wednesday.

Lawmakers must approve rule changes for the session first. If that happens, proposed amendments could be heard on Thursday.

House Republicans tried to override Governor Beverly Perdue's veto of the Voter ID Bill on Tuesday. They did not have enough support.

They did override her abortion bill veto, which now goes over to the Senate.
