Rein In Governor Cooper’s Unilateral Control

The Emergency Powers Act would hold government accountable and prevent one person from having unilateral authority to shut down businesses and schools indefinitely.

However, the current law granting these emergency powers was simply not written with today’s challenges in mind. Our bill will clarify the law to encourage greater bipartisan consensus and ensure stronger oversight and accountability.”
