1-cent sales tax to expire — Senator Daniel is asking how we feel about this bill.  Please make sure you call him in Raleigh soon.  Yes, we want this tax to expire.  The state needs to live within it’s means. CONTACT INFO at the bottom of the page.

Charter Schools Cap – Education Committee is voting today, so it could be going to the floor soon.  Yes, this will create an environment of school choice.  If the school it not performing, students leave.  The school shuts down.  This is the free-market at work.  

Voter ID public hearings –
The House Elections Committee is requesting public comments regarding requiring photo ID to vote by 3/15.  Public Comment link, http://www.ncleg.net/Applications/RFC/?id=6

Balanced Budget Act 2011 – SB13
Even though SB 13 “Balanced Budget Act of 2011” was initially passed by both N.C. Legislatures, the Governor voted it on 2/22/11.  On 3/9/2011, the N.C. Senate overrode the Governor’s veto.  It is now before the N.C. House.

Governor Beverly Perdue recent veto of SB 13 “Balanced Budget Act of 2011”.  On one hand Governor Perdue advocates a Balanced budget but not if it means furloughing teachers and teacher’s aide.  She would rather increase the taxes upon the citizen of North Carolina than increase class sizes by 2 to 5 students.

Governor Beverly Perdue in her attempts to balance the state budget has passed down several state expenses to the counties for handling now (e.g. – School Bus Replacement Cost; workmen’s compensation expense for public and community college employees; and etc.).  For being the “Governor of Education” she was quick to abandon the fiscal funding needs of schools systems statewide!

Governor Beverly Perdue recent veto of HB 2 “Protect Health Care Freedom Act”, even though several polls show 55 to 65 percent of North Carolinian are against the current form of Obamacare.  She vetoed the bill.  That means all of ObamaCare is in effect in NC.

Repeals 25 year ban on state’s coastal erosion control structures. Building of Terminal Groins to stop coastal erosion, but could disrupt other natural coastal evolution.  These cost $200 million per year per structure – to protect private homes from beach erosion.  This is not the state’s job.

SB75 Promote Electricity Demand Reduction.  It offers utilities companies a 5th option to reduce demand.  Elect. Co. must first convince customers to install 2-way communication devices giving utilities and consumer access to energy controls in real time.  Essentially, this is an end-run around Cap-and-Trade.  If Elect. Co. can’t produce enough renewal energy they can purchase power or carbon credits from other renewable energy co.

State Regulations of Greenhouse Gas Emissions SB308 – Environment and Natural Resources Committee will meet – this legislation provides that the state regulates greenhouse gas emissions that are not more stringent that federal regulations.  This is another extension of Cap-and-Trade.

HB61 Term Limits – Speaker Thom Tillis.  No one shall serve as House Speaker or President Pro Tem Pore of the Senate more than 2 terms.

About Christine

I believe in the CONSERVATIVE principles and values of the Republican Party as they are written, and not how they are currently practiced by today's RINO's. Smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states' rights, free market capitalism, and less government intrusion in our lives!

    Hi to everyone of the Caldwell County TEA Party!

    I hope you and your group is doing great! I have been following your work since last year and I can say

    Nothing more than that you are doing a tremendous job and I am very proud of everyone in that group! I am contacting you today in hope that your group may consider helping a very talented and faithful band in our area. The name of this band is Waiting on Redemption and their music is christian-based music. This band has been existent for three years and in that three years, many goals have been accomplished, but it seems that virtually no one is willing to get involved to help these guys out and so I have decided to try and help with that.

    While I am unsure of your endorsement policies, I can surely say that your group has voiced opinions on faith which line up with every one of God’s words and we would not be contacting you if that were not true. We believe that a group, such as yours, would be an effective and exciting way to not only voice our opinions on issues facing our culture today but to allow us to promote and spread the word about this great band. We have attempted to utilize many social media outlets such as FaceBook, Myspace, and even reverb nation.com, but have not been able to reach as many as we would like. We know that support goes a long way and when I wanted to voice my opinion on issues in front of your group, you were generous enough to let me do so! So, I ask of you that if you would consider an endorsement or public support of our band or allow us to come and meet with members of your group and pass out information, we believe that we will be many steps closer to achieving our goals within a short period of time.

    Information about this band can be found at the following:

    FaceBook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Waiting-On-Redemption

    MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/waitingonredemptionmusic

    For personal contact info, you may contact m at ccarr2008@live.com or you can reach Singer Robert (BJ) Tallent at (828) 219-4017.

    Thanks so much for your time and we look forward to hearing back from you! God bless you!

    Sincerely,

    Colby D. Carr

    Burke County TACS Chairman

    NCTARS Social Media Director
