With the two-year anniversary of Gov. Cooper’s COVID-19 state of emergency declaration this Thursday, March 10th, the entire House Republican Caucus today sent a letter organized by Majority Leader John Bell to the Governor calling on him to end his emergency order and allow the state to move forward.
“After two years of executive orders that shut down businesses, restricted gatherings, closed schools, and mandated masks, the people of North Carolina are more than ready to move on,” the letter states. “As key metrics continue to fall and vaccines remain readily available to those who want one, there is no justification for a continued state of emergency.”
The letter continues, “Simply put, there is no emergency. We urge you to immediately end your emergency order and allow our state to move forward.”
