NC House Speaker Tim Moore wants to make House Rules Change to Override Vetoes without notice. The NC House rules have previously required advance notice that votes will take place to ensure all representatives are on the floor for crucial decisions. Speaker Moore wants to eliminate this window so that he can override Governor Cooper’s vetoes swiftly and without a democratic process. If Moore gets his way, crucial issues on personal freedoms and individual rights could be voted on without every representative present. (Action talking points created by DownHome NC)

Basic Talking Points:
– Hi my name is _____, I live in ____ and I am a person of faith.
– I am calling to express my deep anger and disappointment that Speaker Moore is attempting to change the NC House rules so that he can unilaterally and without warning call a veto override vote.
– This rule change undermines the functionality of our legislature and is a disservice to the people of our state. It is both juvenile and unethical that he is seeking the power to call a vote when a representative goes to the bathroom, is sick, or has a family emergency.
– North Carolinians deserve a transparent and accountable legislature where all of our representatives have a fair chance to represent us.
