Cooper Considers Breaking Law AGAIN To Refuse Confirmation For Appointments…

Excerpt By: News & Record.  Written By: Gary D. Robertson

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper isn’t committing to have his Cabinet secretaries come before state Senate committees as part of their formal confirmation process, which stems from a new law the governor has sued over to stop.

Senate Republican leaders laid out this week how they will scrutinize department heads chosen by the new Democratic governor, with the first secretary expected before a committee meeting Feb. 8. A Cooper spokesman on Tuesday urged senators to wait until after a court could rule on whether the chamber had the constitutional authority to approve the secretaries.
