Brown is a co-sponsor of legislation that would criminalize a woman appearing topless in public. A bill expected to be approved in the North Carolina Legislature would make it legal to send women to prison for appearing topless in public. The bill is in response to two topless rallies that occurred in Asheville, NC. According to the legislation, a woman could be charged with a felony, punishable by up to six months in prison for first-time offeners.
Nine of North Carolina’s 45 incoming freshman state legislators signed a pledge to "oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes." The pledge was in line with each of their campaign promises to fix the state’s fiscal hole without resorting to tax hikes. At the time they signed the pledge, North Carolina was looking at a budget deficit as high as $4 billion in 2011.
Brown signed the pledge in November 2010.
