NC House Republicans Can Now Override Vetoes by Cooper

WRAL TV is reporting that controversial North Carolina bills could be approved with little notice if the House of Representatives moves forward with new rules proposed by the GOP majority. State legislators returned to Raleigh yesterday, where, for the next two years, the GOP will have almost enough members to pass their agenda at-will and override vetoes by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper.

Cooper, who has had to work with a Republican-controlled legislature  since he was first elected in 2016, has vetoed more bills than any North  Carolina governor. He has blocked bills seeking to expand access to  guns, limit abortion rights, banned the teaching of critical race  theory, and many other GOP pursuits.
