North Carolina Governor Signs Budget and Two Bills into Law

Raleigh, NC (STL.News) Governor Roy Cooper signed the following bills into law:

  • Senate Bill 105: 2021 Appropriations Act.
  • House Bill 404: Ltd. Immunity for PSAP/TC for S.L. 2021-171.
  • Senate Bill 183: Ignition Interlock/Various Changes.
  • Governor Cooper made the following statement on SB 105:
