Controversial State Amendment Makes Way To November Ballot

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — A state constitutional amendment on the November ballot is causing some controversy.

Amendment One allows local governments to borrow money for road and utility improvements for economic development projects.

Supporters say the amendment is crucial to bringing new jobs to North Carolina.

However, some people oppose it because so-called self-financing bonds do not require voter approval.
