We did it together! AFP members advance free market economic legislation in

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 officials—eventually 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.

A bright new day is coming to North Carolina!

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 governor’s 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 governor’s vetoes to improve our unemployment rate!

I hope you will sign up today for an important jobs rally in front of the General Assembly building on Tuesday, July 26. We need to urge legislators in the State House to override the Governors' vetoes of bi-partisan, job-creation bills.

North Carolina needs a bright new day when it comes to North Carolina jobs. 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:
