In the past four years our NC legislature has attempted to....

  • ​impose on Greensboro partisan redistricting for its municipal government 
  • strip Charlotte of its world-class airport
  • take over the Asheville water authority
  • thwart renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar, across the state...

and has succeeded in...

  • refusing to enact Medicaid expansion legislation that would have provided coverage to a half million North Carolinians and pumped  billions of dollars annually into our state
  • passing HB2, inflicting immeasurable economic damage on NC, institutionalizing bigotry, and making our state a laughingstock across the country
  • slashing public education funding in favor of virtually unaccountable charter schools
  • gutting the budget of the NC Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources and stripping it of enforcement powers, stalling cleanup efforts, repealing clean air and other health-related regulations, and imposing climate change denier rules on its activities
  • killing a highly productive, job creating tax credit that had propelled Wilmington into the front ranks of the film industry
  • engaging in a power grab to strip our new governor of much of his authority...

and is defending in the US Supreme Court...

  • a state wide redistricting plan that a lower federal court has called a "textbook example of racial gerrymandering."

This incomplete listing of legislative efforts and accomplishments should be sufficient to illustrate the point:  WE NEED TO STOP THIS NOW !!!
