Several of these key jobs-bill override votes could be voted on Tuesday afternoon along with various other types of bills. (Voter photo ID bill, NCAE Dues Bill, etc.)

We need to be right there in the House gallery in our brightest shirts urging legislators in the State House to override the Governors’ vetoes of bi-partisan, job-creation bills.
With near double digit unemployment, The North Carolina General Assembly with strong bi-partisan efforts passed key free market job creation bills.

Unfortunately, Governor Perdue vetoed some of these key bills, including:

SB 781, Regulatory Reform Act:

The Regulatory Reform Act clarifies and simplifies some of North Carolina’s confusing and outdated regulations, making it easier for citizens and businesses to attain permits and rely on more predictable guidelines. State agencies have added or changed more than 15,000 rules over the past decade, many of which create uncertainty in the private sector and impede job creation.

SB 709, Energy Jobs Act:

The Energy Jobs Act directed the governor to begin negotiating a tri-state pact with the governors of Virginia and South Carolina to encourage President Obama’s administration to allow offshore energy exploration.

SB 33, Medical Malpractice Reform:

SB 33 expands access to care and will attract scores of new medical jobs. Under the current system, North Carolina doctors are forced to administer expensive and unnecessary tests and procedures. The high cost of that defensive medicine is then passed on to consumers in the form of higher insurance costs and to taxpayers in the form of costlier taxpayer-funded medical programs for the poor.

SB 532, Employment Security Commission Jobs Reform:

SB 532 makes necessary changes to one of the state’s most dysfunctional agencies.

We will see you in Raleigh on Tuesday!
