The state chapter of Americans for Prosperity this week are visiting congressional district offices to urge lawmakers to support spending cuts.
The AFP, a conservative advocacy group, is pressuring congress to not vote to prevent the automatic sequestration spending cuts scheduled to take place in several weeks.
“North Carolina taxpayers are tired of the excuses – it's time for Congress cut cut spending and we intend to hold our senators and representatives accountable,” said Dallas Woodhouse, the group's state director.
The group said it plans office visits, door knocks and town hall meetings across the state.
It is scheduled to visit the offices of Rep. G.K Butterfield's office in Wilson and Sen. Kay Hagan's office in Greenville, and Rep. Walter Jones' office in Greenville today. On Thursday, it will visit Sen. Richard Bur's Wilmington office and Rep. Mike McIntyre's Leland office.
