Sarah Preston, Policy Director for the ACLU of North Carolina, gave the presentation on this morning’s call. She discussed the status of legislation related to
- Reproductive rights (SB353 likely replaces HB695 and a series of other bills)
- Voter ID
- School vouchers (House Budget)
- Drug testing/screening for Work First Participants (HB392 likely replaces SB594)
and took questions on an array of concerns. You can find ACLU fact sheets and additional information at their website, www.acluofnc.org. She also pointed out that those who are negatively impacted by legislation are encouraged to contact the ACLU to discuss possible legal challenges to the legislation.
