Today, Governor Roy Cooper signed the following bills into law:
- House Bill 193: AOC Ct Changes/Amd Expunction.
- House Bill 378: Firefighters Criminal History Record Checks.
Governor Cooper also vetoed the following bill:
- House Bill 219: Charter School Omnibus.
Governor Cooper made the following statement on his veto of HB 219:
“This bill allowing more students to attend failing charter schools risks their education and their future. The State Board of Education should continue to oversee the enrollment growth of charter schools to assure success. North Carolina should continue to cap the enrollment growth of low-performing charter schools until they can show that they improve student achievement. Finally, diverting local resources to build charter schools without clear authority on who owns them risks financial loss to county taxpayers who have no recourse.”
Governor Cooper also declined to sign one bill into law:
- House Bill 201: Retirement Admin. Changes Act of 2023-AB.
