McCrory to allow coal ash regulation bill to become law without his signature
RALEIGH, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory will let the Coal Ash Management Act become law without his signature.
The act was passed by the North Carolina General Assembly on Aug. 20.
McCrory said constitutional, operational and funding concerns with the bill prevent him from giving the bill a full endorsement.
Gov. Pat McCrory announced Tuesday he will let the Coal Ash Management Act, passed by North Carolina’s General Assembly Aug. 20, become law without his signature.
McCrory warned while the General Assembly was debating the bill, Senate Bill 729, that a portion of it may be unconstitutional due to the addition of a commission whose majority would be appointed by the Legislature.
