N.C. Budget Bill Threatens Rights of Injured Workers

The N.C. General Assembly has until June 30, the end of the fiscal year, to pass a state budget. As the budget vote comes down to the wire, we need you to contact your state legislators TODAY to make sure they don't approve a budget that would jeopardize the rights of injured workers by allowing the governor to fire every workers' compensation judge for no reason! That's exactly what will happen if the state budget passes with a particular provision intact. Section 15.1.6(b) of the budget bill would dramatically change the terms of deputy co ...

Tribute to Todd Martinez

I wanted to take a moment today to pay tribute to High Point Firefighter Todd Martinez who died last weekend after a hit-and-run bicycle crash. Anytime I hear of a death like this, I am saddened because accidents like these don't have to happen if only drivers would share the road and give cyclists the respect they deserve.
