SMITHFIELD --  Oct 3, 2018 Today, Governor Cooper signed Senate Bill 2 and House Bill 4 into law.

 

PRESS RELEASE


Senate Bill 2: An act to provide flexibility in the school calendar, to facilitate compensation to school employees, and to provide relief to students enrolled in an educator preparation program to accommodate extraordinary circumstances due to Hurricane Florence.

House Bill 4: An act to enact the Hurricane Florence Emergency Response Act.

Governor Cooper shared the following statement on Hurricane Florence Relief Legislation:

“Hurricane Florence has deeply wounded North Carolina, but working together, we’ll recover smarter and stronger. The bills I’ve signed today help students and teachers, protect voter access and make an initial down payment on the cost of this recovery. When a storm rolls in, it doesn’t come with a party label and our response can’t either. I will continue working with legislators from both parties to help Florence survivors.”
