North Carolina lawmakers are again reversing Gov. Roy Cooper’s effort to block legislation.
The state House on Thursday overrode two more Cooper vetoes. If the Senate goes along, that would make seven bills that became law despite the governor’s opposition.
Legislators approved allowing Republican lawyer Bill Peaslee to draw a second state paycheck for his occasional Property Tax Commission work along with his full-time job on the state Industrial Commission. Cooper also would lose to legislative leaders two of his 13 appointments on the board that regulates doctors.
The second bill would allow credit property insurance to be sold for more consumer products such as all-terrain vehicles. The policies cover damage or loss to property used to secure a loan. Premiums are rolled into the loans, raising borrowing costs.
