NC Governor Vetoes GOP controlled Legislature’s Anti-Health Care Bill
Gov. Bev Perdue on Saturday vetoed a bill passed by the Republican-controlled General Assembly that would have required the state to challenge a key requirement of the year-old national health care overhaul law.
“This is an ill-conceived piece of legislation that’s not good for the people of North Carolina. Therefore, I veto it,” Perdue said in a statement, after first making an announcement on Twitter.
State Republican leaders denounced the veto as a political maneuver.
