McCrory finds veto stamp—three days late

Governor Pat McCrory finally discovered his veto stamp today, using it to block a new law [1] that would have expanded some exemptions for the troubling e-verify system and another bill that would have required drug testing for welfare recipients [2].

McCrory deserves some credit for rejecting the drug-testing bill as the ACLU of NC explained well in a statement [3]today.

Too bad McCrory didn’t find that veto stamp three days ago. [4]
