Democrat Legislators Who Voted for SB 37 Should Publicly Call on Cooper to Sign It

Press Release:

    Raleigh, NC     Last week, a bipartisan coalition of the Republican-led North Carolina General Assembly passed SB37 to safely reopen North Carolina public schools. The bill garnered support of bipartisan supermajorities capable of overriding Democrat Governor Roy Cooper's veto. In the face of imminent defeat, Governor Cooper appears to be deliberately dragging out the process hoping to avoid the humiliation of having his veto overridden.

    "The Democrats who voted for SB 37 should publicly call on Cooper to make a decision so that the bill goes into law or they can override his veto," said NCGOP Communications Director Tim Wigginton. "Every day that Cooper delays a decision on SB 37 is more time lost for in-person learning for North Carolina kids. That is why his Democrat allies in the legislature who voted for SB 37 should call on him to make a decision."
