Events around the state starting 9/4/18, timed with the start of confirmation hearings of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for US Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is an extremist and would be devastating to all kinds of people and the environment. Link to action as well.
Even just the titles of these articles give you an idea how terrible this state budget is. This is the state budget for which the NCGA leadership subverted the process so there can be no amendments or discussion on it. The first two scathing articles are about the Republican leadership circumventing the budget process. The next articles are about some of the things they have done in the budget they won’t allow to be changed – they are giving $1.55 million away to anti-abortion pregnancy clinics (aka Crisis Pregnancy Clinics). They cut suicide hotline money. They refuse to fund the tracking of the 15,160 untested rape kits. They are giving veteran teachers absolutely nothing. Again. And more.
