Comments by Constitutional Amendments Commission Contradict Letter to Lawmakers

Raleigh, N.C.  – State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) and Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) released a statement on Tuesday responding to comments made by Democratic members of the Constitutional Amendments Publication Commission at a work session this morning:

“Despite Democratic members of the commission assuring lawmakers in writing that ‘the commission’s work is neither to support nor oppose an amendment,’ their grandstanding today validated our concerns that the commission’s work would be politicized and shows why the General Assembly needed to step in and pass legislation to ensure the voters did not receive confusing, misleading captions on the ballot this fall.”
