Today, Governor Roy Cooper signed two bills into law:
- House Bill 2: 2022 Budget Technical Corrections
- Senate Bill 174: Rev. Laws Tech., Clarifying, & Admin. Chngs
He also declined to sign the following bill:
- House Bill 11: Schools for the Deaf and Blind
Governor Cooper made the following statement on HB 11:
"This bill unconstitutionally attacks the State Board of Education by putting partisan political appointees of the legislature in charge of our NC schools for the deaf and blind, and I will not sign it. In addition Republican legislators have put forth other proposals that encourage politics to interfere with public school curriculums, and I urge them to stop these efforts that lead to controversial book bans, rewriting history, erasing science and other obstacles to student learning."
