The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 13: McCrory Pressed to Halt Confederate License Plates

From the July 24, 2015, Wilmington (NC) Star-News/AP by John Morit.

The debate over the appropriateness of Confederate symbols continues in North Carolina and groups on both sides are pressuring Governor Pat McCrory to take action.

On Thursday, those groups desiring the state to stop the sale of Sons of Confederacy license plates because they feature a Confederate flag which is part of their logo, delivered a petition with more than 13,000 signatures.  They want him to use his executive authority to ha;t the sale of them.

McCrory says he wants to stop the sale of them, but says the law requires him to wait for General Assembly approval.  The General Assembly says it is the governor's call.

More than 2,000 of the Sons of Confederate Veterans license plates have been sold.
