Raleigh, N.C. —
House lawmakers amended their chamber rules this morning in response to an incident earlier this month in which five Democratic lawmakers delivered a petition to Speaker Thom Tillis, R-Mecklenburg, and took pictures in his office while neither the Republican nor his staff were present.
The measure, put forward by Rep. Larry Hall, D-Durham, surfaced yesterday. It was approved by the House Rules Committee Wednesday and then approved by the full chamber Thursday morning with little debate.
