Venus flytrap poaching now a felony

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Stealing a rare carnivorous plant native to our area is now a more serious crime.

Gov. Pat McCrory today signed into law Senate Bill 734, which passed during the legislative short session this summer.

Titled Regulatory Reform Act of 2014, McCrory says the law “eliminates unnecessary regulations and laws and streamlines the rulemaking process.”

The law also expands protections for rare plants, including Venus flytraps. The plant grows natively in only a few areas mainly in southeastern North Carolina and northeastern South Carolina. Stealing the plant or its seeds is now a Class H felony in North Carolina.

More NC ads from Hagan and allies, Koch group

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — More ads are filling North Carolina’s airwaves in the US Senate race, considered one of the most expensive in the country.

Sen. Kay Hagan and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced Thursday they’re spending nearly $1 million on radio ads on stations tailored to black listeners. The commercial blames Republican challenger Thom Tillis and other GOP lawmakers for education cuts, tax breaks for the wealthy and new voting restrictions.

The Freedom Partners Action Fund also said this week it’s running two television ads through the end of the month criticizing Hagan for her support for President Barack Obama’s signature health care law and for continued problems with health care for veterans. The fund linked to financiers Charles and David Koch says it’s spending “six figures” on the ads.
