N.C. House Speaker Responds to Veto of School Reopening Legislation

Raleigh, N.C. – State House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) responded on Friday to Governor Cooper’s veto of legislation to give North Carolina families the option to return to in-person instruction.

“With this veto the Governor ignored desperate parents, policy experts, and students who are suffering from his refusal to let them return to the classroom,” Speaker Moore said.
“The legislature has worked hard to find common ground with the Governor, but we have a constitutional duty to provide education access to our students and will pursue a veto override on behalf of North Carolina families.”
