A bill in the North Carolina House of Representatives would divert critical funding away from public school budgets statewide–and it could come up for vote at any time.

What is House Bill 539?



Contact your legislators to tell them how HB 539 could hurt schools.

Right now, HB 539 could be called up for a vote on the House floor at any time–we’ll only get 24 hours’ notice before it’s voted on and potentially passed to the governor to be signed into law.

We’re urging concerned voters to contact their legislators. Most representatives and senators won’t pay attention to copy-and-paste emails, so consider using this fact sheet and writing a personal letter or calling your representative to tell them not to support HB 539.
