Automobile Inspections

Senator Stan Bingham's 2011 bill to end mandatory annual automobile inspections, required in North Carolina since 1966, died in the Commerce Committee, chaired by Brown. The John Locke Foundation identified Bingham's bill as one which would have reduced "cronyism" in North Carolina's government and noted that Brown was a former chairman of the North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association and owner or part-owner of three dealerships which collect fees from performing inspections.[7]

Education lottery

On August 30, 2005, the Senate approved the creation of the North Carolina Education Lottery 24-24 with Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue casting the tiebreaker. The vote was held when lottery opponent Brown was on his "long-delayed honeymoon" and two weeks after Senate President Pro Tem Marc Basnight had announced that the chamber had finished its work for the year. The John Locke Foundation described the legislative process leading to the lottery's creation as an example of "cronyism."[8]
