Gov. Cooper: VETO the big pork protection bill!!

To be delivered to Governor Roy Cooper

Petition Statement

VETO HB467/S460! This bill limits the ability of North Carolina citizens to sue for relief from harm and pollution from industrial hog operations. This bill benefits big polluters and hurts poor and minority North Carolinians. It erodes fundamental Constitutional rights for us all. VETO HB467/S460!!
There are currently 3,554 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Rachel Carson Council has worked with other environmental and citizens' organizations in North Carolina to stop HB 467. But we came up short, despite petitions, organizing, protests, bipartisan opposition in the legislature, and expert Constitutional arguments against the bill. Governor Roy Cooper is the last, best hope to stop this giveaway to big pork and to protect those who suffer from hog waste and pollution. We must call on him to VETO this bill!
