Last night Governor Cooper delivered the annual State of The State address for North Carolina.
In it, he talked about how North Carolina has seen incredible economic success this past year, even being named the #1 state for business in 2022. He highlighted clean energy as one example of its initiatives that have created good jobs. Bipartisan accomplishments of state leaders have enabled the state to invest $2 billion in connecting all houses to high-speed internet and another $2 billion for updating outdated water infrastructure.
The Governor also highlighted the achievement of reaching a Medicaid expansion agreement and announced that he will be releasing a comprehensive mental health plan in the coming days. In addition, he previewed his budget that provides double digit raises for teachers and principals, keeps the buses running, helps children with special needs, keeps schools safe, and doesn’t raise taxes while still balancing the budget.
