NC House votes to repeal Racial Justice Act (video)

Members of the state House gave final approval Wednesday to Senator Thom Goolsby’s bill repealing the Racial Justice Act. Democrats argued that the legislation was still needed because of racial bias in the judicial system.

Republicans rejected appeals to amend the bill, which passed third reading 77-39.

If the Senate approves the changes made by the House, the legislation goes to Governor McCrory’s desk.
