Governor Bev Perdue vetoed a bill today called “An Act to Clarify Legislative Confidentiality.”
In a released statement, Perdue said, “Transparency and accountability are hallmarks of my administration. If this legislation became law, documents that are currently public record would become private. Additionally, this bill treats certain state employees unequally.”
The General Assembly passed the bill last month after making major changes during the last days of legislative session.
