*** URGENT NATIONAL LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT! ***
PLEASE URGE GOVERNOR MCCRORY TO SIGN
NORTH CAROLINA’S ALAC BILL INTO LAW!
OPPOSITION WORKING TO SHUT IT DOWN, IRRESPECTIVE
OF STRONG COMMUNITY SUPPORT
E-MAILS NEEDED NOW!
by Lisa Piraneo, Director of Government Relations
Over the last few months, things have been going very well in the state of North Carolina with regard to American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) legislation.
The state legislature has passed Representative Chris Whitmire’s American Laws for American Courts bill, officially titled, “Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights” (bill number, HB522) with bi-partisan support: House (75-37) and Senate (31-2).
North Carolina is well on its way to joining the FIVE other states who now have ALAC laws on the books.
But there is one final step necessary.
We are still waiting for Governor Pat McCrory to sign North Carolina’s American Laws for American Courts legislation so it becomes law in North Carolina. He has until August 25th to do so and he is being pounded by opposition groups like CAIR—who have unleashed their national members on North Carolina—to veto the bill.
At this time, it is critical that the Governor understand how important ALAC is to North Carolina, as well as how supported it is by the community.
THIS IS AN URGENT NATION-WIDE CALL FOR ALL HANDS ON DECK.
Can we count on you to help us with the quick Action Item noted below? It will only take a minute of your time, but it will send a very powerful message to the Governor.
Again, as a quick re-cap, Representative Chris Whitmire’s American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) bill, officially titled, “Foreign Laws/Protect Constitutional Rights” (bill number, HB522) now passed both the North Carolina House (75-37) and Senate (31-2)—with bipartisan support!
Now Governor McCrory must sign the measure into law, so that North Carolina can join the FIVE other states that have already done so.
This issue is a top priority for Brigitte Gabriel and the ACT! for America national organization. Can we count on you to help us with the quick Action Item noted below—and to pass this message on to everyone you know?
*** Important Action Item ***
Today, please E-MAIL, Governor Pat McCrory (no phone calls, please) and relay the message below respectfully and in your own words.

Please respectfully relay the following message in your own words:
I am pleased to see that HB522, introduced by Representative Chris Whitmire, has passed both the North Carolina House and Senate in a bi-partisan fashion.
This bill is important because it protects North Carolinians’ constitutional rights from the incursion of foreign laws and foreign legal doctrines, if those laws infringe upon their state or federal constitutional rights. It’s common sense—pure and simple. No particular law is singled out.
We must maintain the authority of the North Carolina and U.S. Constitutions.
I urge you to sign this piece of legislation into law as soon as possible so that North Carolina can join the five other states that already have done so.
Thank you very much for your leadership on this vital matter.
REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS!
IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN
ACCOMPLISH A LOT!
