Governor Vetoes Senate Bill 37

Press Release:

    RALEIGH: Today, Governor Roy Cooper vetoed the following bill:

    Governor Cooper shared the following statement on SB 37:

    "Students learn best in the classroom and I have strongly urged all schools to open safely to in-person instruction and the vast majority of local school systems have done just that.

    However, Senate Bill 37 falls short in two critical areas. First, it allows students in middle and high school to go back into the classroom in violation of NC Department of Health and Human Services and CDC health guidelines. Second, it hinders local and state officials from protecting students and teachers during an emergency.

    As I have informed the Legislature, I would sign the bill if these two problems are fixed.

    As written, the bill threatens public health just as North Carolina strives to emerge from the pandemic. Therefore, I veto the bill."

Should public schools fully open NOW to the extent that parents feel comfortable; exposing their children to in-person, or virtual learning, or a hybrid of both?
  Yes, parents should have some determination in the process of educating their children here in the Age of Covid.
  No, schools should not fully open until the Education Industry and a majority of Leftist politicians deem it practicable.
  I never cared much about that whole education thing.

After almost a year of many schools being closed, the Democratic Socialist Central Committee has expressed that it does not want schools to open any time soon, so North Carolina's Democratic Socialist Governor obliges.

Good boy.
