The Student & Adinistration Act or "SAE Act" guarantees both students and student organizations the right to some sort of legal representation in the event of any university disciplinary action. Prior to this Bill being passed students were at a higher risk of being suspunded from their University for 5 years upon conviction. This Bill will surely spare the futures of students within the University system facing disciplinary action.
This bill was recived bipartisan sponsorships by Representatives Baskerville, J. Bell, Glazier, and Jordan.

As many of you may know our public school system has taken a great hit after this past session. Many teacher assisting positions have been cut, as class sizes grow larger. Some of the students may not have the proper books and resources to properly learn the curriculum. With this being said I promise to continue to push for greater education and we must remain united so that our voices will be heard so that we may see to a successful resolution to the issues at hand regarding our teachers and students within the North Carolina Public School System.

In the last 72 hours of the 2013 General Assembly, NC Republicans pushed through a 56-page bill that adds new barriers to voting but gives big donors new ways to secretly influence elections!

Appropriations Act of 2013 State Budget (SB 159) -The budget gives sweeping breaks to the wealthy, big business and out of state shareholders, while hurting small businesses and raising taxes on the bottom 80 percent of taxpayers. It also slashes education by cutting nearly a half-billion dollars which will result in over 4,000 teachers and 3,800 teachers assistants being forced out of the classroom.
