Your tax dollars at work

In North Carolina, the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners is hard at work lobbying the North Carolina state legislature to amend the state’s sunshine law so that if a citizen (or a media outlet) sues a government agency because of a records denial, and loses, the government agency could recover attorney fees.

At least part of the budget of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners is paid for with dues that it receives from counties…that is, with tax dollars. Its pernicious that they are using tax money to lobby this way.

  1. Thanks for keeping up with doings in my home state. I generally don’t, keeping busy with things in my adopted state of Vermont.
