Veto Override

This week, Republicans in the Senate overrode three of Gov. Roy Cooper’s vetoes. The General Assembly has officially, and successfully, overridden all 22 of Gov. Cooper’s vetoes this biennium.

On the override of House Bill 237, Sen. Britt said, “There are thugs on the streets who wear masks so they can get away with harassing, and sometimes attacking, the public and police. The governor sought to continue encouraging this behavior with his veto of House Bill 237, but the legislature was never going to let that happen.”

Another important bill that modifies Juvenile Justice procedures, which also received a veto from Gov. Cooper, was recently overridden as well. The primary goal of this bill is to have individuals between the ages of 13 and 15 who have committed a Class A felony, and individuals who are 16 or 17 and committed a Class F or G felony, automatically transferred to superior court upon finding probable cause of such crime occurring.

Additionally, the Senate recently passed a bill that will make changes to certain Constitutional amendments. Notably, the bill aims to require valid photo identification for ALL people voting, not just those going in-person, cap the personal and corporate income tax rate at 5% rather than the current 7%, and to ensure that only those who are citizens and satisfy all other qualifications are able to vote in elections. This bill will now go back to the House for a final vote. To read more about this bill, go to: .
