At least some level of sanity has prevailed in the NCGA:
Lawmakers approved the bill 81-27 with strong bipartisan support. Though Senate passage is far from assured, supporters were encouraged by the 3-1 margin.
State Rep. Charles Jeter sponsored the bill to cancel the Interstate 77 toll project contract.
“That should send a loud message to Gov. Pat McCrory that this is a bad project for our communities, for our commerce and for our citizens,” said Bill Russell, president of the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce.
It will be interesting to see if the puffed chests in the Senate follow suit, or decide to smother this effort.
