Neighbors on Call’s NC Policy Update for 2/14/22


Fair Representation

Voting Rights

  • On Monday the NC Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case that could decide the fate of two state constitutional amendments that appeared on the ballot in 2018. The North Carolina branch of the NAACP, the plaintiff in the case, argues that the two amendments – a voter ID requirement and an income tax cap of 7% – are illegitimate because they were placed on the ballot by an illegally gerrymandered state legislature. While a Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, the decision was then overturned in a split decision by the Court of Appeals.

Health Care Policy

From WRAL: “Deep in the 2021 state budget bill was a provision requiring lawmakers to study the issue of Medicaid expansion. That resulted in the creation of the Joint Legislative Committee on Access to Healthcare and Medicaid expansion, which is scheduled to hold its first meeting next Friday, Feb. 18.”
