The General Assembly gaveled in a special session Wednesday. Their first order of business: Overriding a veto of a bill which changes more than a dozen state environmental laws.
When he vetoed the bill, Governor Roy Cooper said the measure weakened protections from river pollutants and landfills.
"I have to disagree with the Governor's points," stated Republican Representative Larry Yarborough, who championed the override effort.
And truthfully there wasn’t much debate.
