Senate Overrides Perdue’s Reckless Vetoes
The North Carolina Senate on Monday voted to override Gov. Beverly Perdue’s reckless vetoes of three bipartisan bills – the budget, legislation to create a robust domestic energy jobs sector, and a bill to correct flaws in the Racial Justice Act.
Below is a statement from President Pro Tempore Phil Berger (R-Rockingham):
“I am thankful there are some courageous Democrats who have put aside partisan politics in an effort to continue moving this state forward. It is unfortunate that Gov. Perdue and Lt. Gov. Dalton remain so transfixed by their defunct tax-and-spend worldview that they could not do the same. Today, the will of the voters prevailed over a lame-duck governor’s last-ditch attempt to push her own left-wing agenda.”Tweet
