Take Action: Ask Governor McCrory to Lead
Dear Governor McCrory:
When you ran for Governor in 2008, you ended every campaign commercial by saying “the difference is leadership.” Right now, your leadership is needed more than ever.
It is clear from the bills filed in the General Assembly last week that Speaker Tillis and President Pro Tempore Berger have lost control of the North Carolina General Assembly. Republican legislators have been drafted bills to ignore the United States Constitution; raise taxes on the parents of college students; keep women in abusive relationships for two years; arrest Federal Agents; and make North Carolina elections as chaotic as Florida’s. This legislative session continues to embarrass the State of North Carolina, and our State needs your leadership to put an end to the madness.
We are asking you publicly denounce the train wreck at the General Assembly. Also, we ask you to pledge to oppose – and veto if necessary – the following absurd proposals:
House Bill 34: the “nipple bill.”
House Bill 451: the omnibus voter suppression bill.
House Bill 518: arresting federal agents & nullifying federal law.
Senate Bill 518: two-year waiting period for divorce.
Senate Bills 666 & 667: Taxing families when students vote; other voter suppression measures.
The North Carolina General Assembly has gone off the rails. Since the leadership of the General Assembly hasn’t stopped this train wreck, we hope you will stand up for the people of North Carolina.
