NCDP Applauds Governor Cooper’s Veto of the GOP Budget

RALEIGH – North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement in response to Governor Cooper’s veto of SB99, the General Assembly’s budget:

“North Carolina Democrats applaud Governor Cooper for standing up for public education and teachers across the state with today’s veto. Republicans in the General Assembly put corporate tax cuts before our teachers and polluters before clean water, creating a budget designed solely to save Republican seats in a blue wave year. North Carolinians deserve new representatives who will prioritize higher teacher pay raises, safer schools, and clean water before corporate donors. Come November, they’ll have them.”
