Raleigh -- North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper Office Press Release March 6, 2019 

In his budget proposal, Investments for a Determined North Carolina, Gov. Roy Cooper proposed putting a bond worth $3.9 billion to a vote of the people for investments in schools and other critical infrastructure. Data released today show how North Carolina public schools, UNC system schools, and community colleges could benefit from the Invest NC bond.

The proposed bond would include $2 billion for K-12 public schools statewide to help meet the need for at least $8 billion in new construction and renovations.

The bond would include $500 million each for facility improvements at community colleges and University of North Carolina System institutions and $800 million to invest in local water and sewer projects. The proposal would also invest $100 million in the NC History Museum and the NC Zoo, cultural institutions that help educate North Carolinians and contribute to the economy.

“A bond is the smartest way to invest in school construction and renovation and other critical needs without causing harmful cuts elsewhere. With a school bond, we’ll get hammers swinging all across the state,” Gov. Cooper said.
