NC Supreme Court Reinstates Block on Elections Board Merger
Monday, the North Carolina Supreme Court issued an order blocking Senate Bill 4 from taking effect while the legal challenge against the law is pending.
This order halts the merger to combine the State Board of Elections with the State Ethics Commission.
Gov. Roy Cooper is currently challenging Senate Bill 4 on the basis that the General Assembly overstepped its state constitutional authority when it adopted the law establishing an eight-member board to oversee elections and consider ethics complaints and issues.
