Governor McCrory, in reacting to the veto overide of House Bill 392 Warrant Status/Drug Screen Public Assist., stated his administration “…will not take any action on the new law’s implementation until sufficient funds with this unfunded mandate are provided, not only for the Department of Health and Human Services, but also the funding for consistent application across all 100 counties.”
In the same press release he also announced “We have found the necessary funds through my budget office…” to facilitate the spending of $10 million dollars for a purpose the legislature never approved.
Tell Governor McCrory to use this “found” money to implement drug screening for those applying for public assistance in accordance with the law passed by the general assembly with overwhelming bi-partisan support.
Article III, Section 5, Part 4 of the North Carolina Constitution requires the governor to faithfully execute the laws passed by the General Assembly.
All governors, without regard to party, swear an oath to uphold the Constitution. Tell Gov. McCrory to perform his constitutional duty to enforce the law
