The full text of the bill that passed the Senate is at http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015/Bills/Senate/PDF/S2v2.pdf

“The Advocate” has a nice article they published after SB2 passed the Senate, at http://www.advocate.com/politics/marriage-equality/2015/02/25/north-carolina-senators-vote-give-clerks-right-discriminate.  There are some great quotes in this article, like this one.

“There’s not rationale to limit discrimination to gay people,” Democratic Sen. Josh Stein said in opposition to the bill. “It could open the floodgates to any [discrimination] that offends someone’s belief.”

Read more about SB 2 in the N&O, at NC Senate’s move to exempt magistrates rekindles marriage debate and from NC Policy Watch, in “Senate Leaders Push to Legalize Discrimination.”
