NC House Finance Chairman resigns, blames Tillis

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A chairman of the state House Finance Committee says he's stepping down over displeasure with decisions of the Republican-led legislature and mistreatment from Speaker Thom Tillis.

 

Rep. Robert Brawley of Mooresville issued a resignation letter Wednesday on the House floor.

 

Brawley claimed Tillis intimidated him over a bill broadening the service area of local cable provider MI Connections because Tillis has a business relationship with Time Warner Cable. Tillis' spokesman said he isn't aware of any relationship.

 

He also called a 2012 bill giving bail bond agents one choice for training a "monopoly" for bondsmen, including Republican Rep. Justin Burr of Albemarle.

 

Brawley said he was asked to resign by Tillis over negative comments on a bill authorizing toll roads in the state. Tillis' spokesman says the decision was mutual.
