NCAE sues over automatic dues bill


Associated Press

RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina's leading teacher lobbying group has sued to block a new law from taking effect that would prevent its members from having their dues removed automatically from their paychecks.

The North Carolina Association of Educators filed a lawsuit Monday in Wake County court, just four days after the House voted in an after-midnight session to override Gov. Beverly Perdue's veto of the bill.

The association said a Superior Court judge issued a temporary restraining order blocking the law from being enacted late Monday. The judge's office couldn't immediately confirm a decision.

Republicans pushed through the override just after holding a session to consider another veto bill involving racial bias and the death penalty. GOP leaders are unhappy with the association's political and lobbying activities in recent years.
