Perdue Vetoes Racial Justice Act Repeal; Legislature Called Back to Raleigh

Governor Beverly Perdue issued her veto of the Racial Justice Act repeal bill on December 14th.  Her veto will stand, and the RJA will be preserved, unless both chambers of the General Assembly vote to override.  The legislature will return to session for a single day – January 4th – to decide the issue.  Under North Carolina law, the override will not succeed unless 3/5ths of present and voting members of each chamber vote in support.
