Moratorium on Forced Annexation_ Where We Are

In a nutshell....
We DON'T actually have a moratorium....YET.

There is still work for us to do to make a moratorium a reality.

This Annexation Study Committee is a HOUSE committee only.

  • The Committee is recommending a moratorium.
  • The House has to introduce a Bill and PASS it.
  • The Bill then has to be PASSED BY THE SENATE.
  • Then it needs to be ratified by the whole General Assembly,
  • and signed by the Governor.
WE all need to keep those letters and phone calls to all of our legislators pouring in!

We need to make sure that all candidates for the House and Senate take a stand on reforming Forced Annexation!

WE CAN DO THIS.
If we DON'T the League of Municipalities will roll right over our elected Representatives with little opposition.

House Select Committee Discussion and Vote on Moratorium


Watch the video of the House Study Committee voting for the moratorium.

Plan to come to Raleigh and spend the afternoon on June 4th for the Citizens Rally for Reform of Annexation.

See YOU there!

  1. YOU CAN CALL THIS A "FREE" COUNTRY IF YOU WISH, BUT IT ISN'T! ITS GREATLY LEANING TOWARD A DICTATORIAL COUNTRY! IF THE GOV'T WANTS TO RUN A HIGHWAY THRU YOUR YARD, WHAT CHOICE DO YOU HAVE?! IF THE GOV'T WANTS TO CONDEMN YOUR PROPERTY FOR A SHOPPING CENTER, WHAT CHOICE DO YOU HAVE?! IF THE GOV'T WANTS TO PUT YOU INSIDE A CITY, WHAT CHOICE DO YOU HAVE?! SURE, WE CAN SPENDS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND COUNTLESS TIME TRYING TO FIGHT, BUT HOW MANY OF US HAVE THE MONEY OR THE TIME?
