Issues

Indecent exposure bill

In the 2013 legislative session, Brown was a primary sponsor of legislation that would have changed the state's indecent exposure law to criminalize women appearing topless in public. The bill came in response to two topless rallies that occurred in Asheville. The legislation sought to change the definition of "private parts" to include "the nipple, or any portion of the areola, of the human female breast."[2][3] The bill did not make it to a floor vote, as it was pulled from the House calendar one day before a scheduled roll call and referred back to the Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House Committee, which did not take further action.[4]

No-New-Taxes Pledge

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.[5]
