It's been a few weeks since the N.C. General Assembly cobbled together a budget compromise
and finally adjourned 2015's marathon session. Enough time for the ACLU of N.C. to assemble its session report card
, released today, which pans state lawmakers for their adoption of handful of hotly-contested bills this year.
That includes Senate Bill 2
, which allowed magistrates to opt out of performing marriages
after same-sex marriage was legalized this year. And then there's House Bill 774, which gave state officials the power to hide the source of execution drugs and remove the requirement that a doctor be present for all executions
. And, of course, House Bill 465, which tripled the waiting period on abortions to 72 hours.
The left-leaning group, which has frequently criticized GOP leadership this year, called this year's session a "major setback for civil liberties." The report card allows you to check where each of the state's lawmakers voted on these and other key bills in 2015.
