Ask state lawmakers to resign from ALEC

Progress NC has launched a new petition:

 Be it resolved that:

  • North Carolina should be governed according to the best interests of its people,not national business interests or ideological agendas.
  • Our state’s laws should be created by North Carolinians in response to NC’s actual challenges, not issues created by those hoping to profit from them.
  • Our government policies should not be manipulated and used as tools for boosting private sector revenue streams at the expense of our state’s citizens.

In short, the American Legislative Exchange Council has no business shaping and setting North Carolina’s laws!
