What Happens To Unsigned Bills

Why Unsigned Bills Become Law

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Governor Roy Cooper left 4 bills left unsigned. So now they become law.

Here's why: He didn't sign or veto them before midnight Sunday. Instead, he sent them back to the General Assembly. Political Expert, Thom Little said that usually happens when a governor doesn't agree with the law, but the General Assembly has enough votes to override a veto.

Here are the four bills he didn't sign:

  • House Bill 527: An Act to Restore and Preserve Free Speech on the Campuses of the Constituent Institutions of the University of North Carolina
  • House Bill 528: An Act to Make Technical, Clarifying, and Other Modifications to the Current Operations Appropriations Act of 2017
  • House Bill 704: An Act to Establish the Joint Legislative Study Committee on the Division of Local School Administrative Units
  • House Bill 719: An Act to Allocate the Parking Spaces in the Upper Level of State Parking Deck 65 to the Legislative Services Commission to Support Security Measures for the Legislative Complex
