Public Comment Open for Judicial Reform

The GOP members of the newly appointed Senate Select Committee on Judicial Reform and Redistricting have been meeting secretly in back rooms to draft plans that could completely change the way judges are selected in North Carolina.

A concerning pattern emerged last week. The #GOPTaxScam has been pretty well publicized in how it hurts average Americans by raising taxes and taking away tax write-offs that so many depend on in favor of tax breaks for big business and the 1%. What also came to light was the FCC’s plan to remove Net Neutrality rules. Net Neutrality keeps the internet open and democratic.
