Early this morning, CCP sent a memo to the North Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee detailing the unconstitutionality of a draft version of a campaign finance bill — H.B. 1111. After CCP’s efforts, the bill was quickly revised to address the raised constitutional problems relating to a variety of legal issues. The committee, officially known as the Senate Judiciary Committee I, is expected to consider the revised bill later today.
As North Carolina’s legislature tries its best to wrap up a month past their originally anticipated adjournment of early July, it’s our hope that North Carolina lawmakers remain mindful of the U.S. Constitution as they consider further legislation.
