Thom Tillis and GOP Friends are changing the NCGA House Rules.

From NC Blue,

If you have a bunch of protestors pointing out your bad policies, what's the best way to solve the problem?

If you're Republicans in the NC legislature, the answer is simple - change the rules to make the protestors go away.


Wral Report that the committee that over sees the NCGA House rules haven’t met since the 90’s..

Tillis and his gang in only doing this to stop the Moral Mondays Protests, Well, Good Luck with that Thom.

also Wral reports that,

The proposed new rules would remove the prohibition on visiting the second floor and allow visitors to carry signs, as long as they were not mounted on sticks or weren't "libelous or vulgar." 

NAACP has this to say,

"Instead of working to repeal legislation that is hurting North Carolinians, these extremist lawmakers are seeming working to try and deter people from exercising their constitutional rights in the People's House," Dr. Barber said. "According to Article I, Section 12 of our state constitution, 'the people have a right to assemble together to consult for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to the General Assembly for redress of grievances; but secret political societies are dangerous to the liberties of a free people and shall not be tolerated.' Under our constitution, Speaker Tillis and Senate Leader Berger should welcome the people - even their critics - and should ban their secret meeting with those individuals who work against the common good. The North Carolina NAACP and the Forward Together Moral Movement will respond to whatever new building rules are passed. We will not stop until we turn this state away from the path of dangerous extremism."
