Legislative leaders still hiding their special session plans

This is getting ridiculous: The North Carolina General Assembly will convene in Raleigh in 73 hours with the apparent intent of amending our state constitution — the fundamental law of our land — and there has still been no official notice of what will be debated, when it will occur, or how the public might have input.

This is simply outrageous! Why the secrecy?

Heck, House Speaker Thom Tillis has already told us that he’ll be at a Republican country club gathering in Mecklenberg County on Tuesday night. We know that he’ll be raking in big bucks at another fancy downtown club in Raleigh three weeks from now, but the man cannot be bothered to tell the people of the state exactly what their elected officials will be debating next week.

Simply amazing.
