HB 264 - Emergency Powers Accountability Act

House Bill 264, Emergency Powers Accountability Act, aligns the letter of the law with the intent of the law concerning the governor’s powers during an emergency. No one person should have the power to unilaterally shut down the state for an indefinite period. By reinforcing a check on the office of the governor, HB264 defends the freedoms of North Carolinians from government overreach. Civitas Action believes the vote for freedom is a vote YES on HB264.
