It has been an exciting week at the General Assembly. In fact, the entire long session so far has been action-packed. Grassroots activism--in the form of voter education, emails and phone calls to legislators, rallies at the legislature and visiting elected officialseventually results in good new policy for North Carolinians! (See the list below.)
Activists have come in carpools to Raleigh from as far away as New Bern, Wilmington and Asheville to rally in front of the state legislature in support of overrides of Governor Bev Perdue's job killing vetoes. AFP members from across the state have visited their elected officials, made their presence known in the gallery, emailed, called and wrote letters.
Before the legislature returned on July 13, Americans for Prosperity held a Veto Bev Perdue rally to encourage lawmakers to override Bev Perdue's vetoes of key job creating bills such as Medical Malpractice reform, the Energy Jobs Act, regulatory reform and others.
The new unemployment numbers have been released, and the news is not good. North Carolina is near a double digit unemployment rate at 9.9%. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has proven with these new numbers just how essential an override of the governors vetoes is.
These bills already passed once in the house with bipartisan support, and they can be passed again! Our State Representatives need to know you support these bills as an immediate remedy to the staggeringly high unemployment rates.
Come to the rally on July 26th and let Raleigh know they need to override the governors vetoes to improve our unemployment rate!
