It’s time to work the phones, North Carolina conservatives! This according to the North Carolina Federation of Republican Women.
According an action alert sent to members, legislative chairman Joyce Krawiec wrote:
Our Republican led House and Senate recently passed S820 to allow for Hydraulic Fracturing in NC. This technology would enable NC to harvest natural gas which would be a huge job creator for our state. The Governor had said she would be in favor of this legislation but now, it is expected that she will veto this legislation. We need to contact certain Legislators that we believe may be leaning to vote for overriding the Governor’s veto.
Krawiec urged readers to telephone and e-mail the following Representatives. She added that callers should be extremely polite and keep your message simple:
Don’t let Governor Perdue continue to block jobs and energy security in North Carolina. Please override the veto of Senate Bill 820.

A reader wrote to KCC today, distressed that President Barack Obama‘s EPA chief is up to her old shenanigans:
Lisa Jackson doesn’t want to admit that her EPA policies are actually job killers and that it would raise costs on NC families and businesses.
The Raleigh News and Observer reported
In a speech at Duke University, Jackson argued that EPA policies conservatives and Republicans in Washington are spreading disinformation in a bid to roll back this country’s environmental protections and to hobble the agency.
However, the paper concluded that Jackson’s speech at Duke is part of a broader counter-attack by regulators who are facing intense criticism from conservative critics during the nation’s worst economic downturn since World War II.
Jackson has been in trouble with the Obama administration before, for going too far in attacks on conservatives. In fact, she nearly had to step down from her high post.
