McCrory Signs 39 Bills That Become NC Law
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory has cleared his desk of dozens of bills sent to him by the North Carolina General Assembly.
McCrory announced he signed 39 pieces of legislation into law, including a measure requiring public schools to teach cursive writing and multiplication tables to elementary public school students. The “Back to Basics” legislation was in part a response by legislators learning national Common Core standards leave out cursive handwriting.
Other bills he signed Wednesday would limit the amount of debt legislators can authorize that doesn’t require voter approval and allow beer vendors to sell within the stands of more professional sporting events, like minor league baseball.
The legislature also made law Wednesday a bill changing districts and elections for the Wake County school board. Local bills don’t go to McCrory.
