Governor Cooper made the following statement on HB 220:

"This legislation undermines North Carolina's transition to a clean energy economy that is already bringing in thousands of good paying jobs. It also wrongly strips local authority and hampers public access to information about critical infrastructure that impacts the health and well-being of North Carolinians."

Governor Cooper made the following statement on SB 725:

"Elections are fundamental to our democracy and in 2020, grants from nonpartisan nonprofits were needed for necessities such as masks, single-use pens and other protective equipment so voters stayed safe during the pandemic. The legislature should start properly funding elections boards to ensure accessible, safe, and secure elections every time, which would end the need for grants."

Governor Cooper made the following statement on HB 294:

"This legislation removes a layer of protection for consumers when buying a vehicle."
