What is needed to pass a North Carolina abortion law?

Right now, nothing is changing in North Carolina when it comes to abortion laws. We have a Democratic Governor and a majority Republican House of Representatives and a majority Republican Senate. The Governor can veto any limits that would be passed by the House and Senate, but the House and Senate could override the Governor's veto if there is a super majority. That could happen in the November mid-term elections. “That's what Republicans are looking for, they have to pick up four seats in the House and three in the senate to get there. That's not a heavy lift, especially in a year where Democrats control the power in DC. We know the off-year, the party in power generally loses seats,” Thom Little, State Legislative Leaders Foundation. A Governor override requires a 60% majority plus one.
