Action: Stop NCGA from Moving Press Into The Basement

The Legislative Leadership plans to move the press room in the Legislative Building away from the action AND INTO THE BASEMENT. No, seriously. Take action NOW! More on the situation and suggested actions here.

According to Media getting squeezed at Legislative Building,” 1/9/19, WRAL.com:

“For 56 years, ever since the Legislative Building opened, media organizations have had workspace across the hall from where news conferences are held and downstairs from the House and Senate chambers. But that’s about to change, and legislative leaders don’t want to talk about why.”

“Legislative Services Officer Paul Coble has decided to move the press to a smaller space in the basement in the farthest corner of the building.”

WRITE and/or call your representatives and Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger and Speaker of the House Tim Moore to tell them this is unacceptable. They are blaming Paul Coble, but Coble will listen to them. Meanwhile, Coble is refusing to talk to anyone about it.

Never has the need been greater than in 2018 for women to push back and move forward. Decades of progress towards women’s equality is being turned back by the current administrations in Washington, D.C., and in North Carolina. “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty,” Thomas Jefferson said so long ago.
