It looks like the state Senate is keeping its promise to defend the recent grassroots victory over forced municipal annexation. Now, it is the state House’s turn to take up annexation reform and AFP activists will be there to encourage them to do so.
The legislation being discussed is a pair of annexation reforms that would stop forced annexations in several areas including: Goldsboro , Kinston , Fayetteville , Wilson , Wilmington , Rocky Mount and Lexington . (House Bill 5-Local De-Annexations).
A second bill would subject ALL forced annexations to a direct vote of the people affected. (House Bill 925-Annexation Reform 2).
After years of abusing taxpayers, the cities that make up the North Carolina League of Municipalities lost this fight in the court of public opinion and the General Assembly in recent months. They should not be able to use taxpayer money to receive a third or fourth bite at the apple.
Catch a bus to Raleigh on Thursday and encourage the state House members to fight for property owners by supporting these bills!
