RS

MEMBER DIARY

In NC, the Governor giveth and the Governor taketh away

K, so NC Governor Pat McCrory (R, allegedly) signs bills for Voter ID and restrictions on abortion clinics, but vetoes a bill requiring drug testing for welfare recipients? He claimed the bill was, among other things, “unfair” and did not help “fight drug addiction.” Ummm, Guv, the bill was not about fighting drug addiction, but about keeping our tax dollars from being used to buy crack, meth, etc. Will the supermajorities in both houses of the NC General Assembly have the cojones to try to override the veto???
