Lawmakers meet SUNDAY to revisit Photo ID for North Carolina Voters - seriously!


Unbelievable. North Carolina lawmakers are meeting on SUNDAY Nov 27 to reconsider overturning 5 laws that were vetoed by our Governor.
PHOTO ID is one of them. It is UNHEARD of for NC's state legislature to meet on a Sunday, much less right after Thanksgiving!


The calender for SUNDAY just came out, hardly anyone knew this was coming, the MEDIA sure didn't!

Is your state legislature meeting on the sly? To pass trash laws like Photo ID or maybe Fracking?
On a SUNDAY?



NC Lawmakers will reconsider PHOTO ID law on SUNDAY Nov 27.(that's HB 351) And other bills.
There also have been rumors that fracking would be heard, but there's nothing on the calender for that on Sunday.

1. Sorry, but I'm confused. To reconsider overturning bills that were vetoed?
Huh?

2. It wasn't written well.
But it looks as though they're trying to see if they can get enough votes to override the veto.

3. The GOP passed photo ID, gov vetoed, now GOP wants to overturn that veto
sorry I didn't say it better.

I don't post often and sometimes don't have time to do it justice.

Thanks for your patience
