Governor McCrory Reacts To House Bond Proposal
Raleigh, N.C. Governor Pat McCrory released the following statement on the North Carolina House's Connect NC bond proposal.
"We're pleased that the Connect NC bond proposal continues to gain momentum. I applaud the House for listening to the people across our state who want to prepare North Carolina for the next generation. North Carolinians deserve a chance to express their voice on this issue in November. The Connect NC proposal provides common-sense, long-term solutions to strengthen our schools, roads, parks, public safety and quality of life. The House proposal aligns with our plan to invest in North Carolina with a prudent, conservative approach that takes advantage of historically low interest rates and doesn't raise taxes. I'd especially like to thank House Speaker Tim Moore and Rep. Dean Arp for their work on a thoughtful process to move the bonds forward."
