Senate overrides Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto on hog nuisance bill

In addition to passing its proposed budget bill Thursday, the N.C. Senate voted to override Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of House Bill 467.

The bill will cap the compensatory damages North Carolinians can win in nuisance lawsuits like those over fecal bacteria rampant in residential areas near hog farms.

Though the veto override vote in the House was close, the Senate voted to override 30-18 with no debate.

    Ok NC citizens, vote these idiot senatorial self serving corporate puppets out of office! It’s time for NC to support our governor in the fight for human rights and what is right! Our congressional reps are a joke and an embarrassment to the great state of North Carolina.
