Gov. Pat McCrory

NC State Ports Authority

The  Governor recently announced plans to make the port in Morehead City more globally competitive by deepening the channel to 50 feet and developing underutilized properties, such as Radio Island. 

Improvements could be coming to the state ports in Wilmington and Morehead City.  Governor Pat McCrory recently announced a 25 year vision for infrastructure investment that would deepen the Beaufort Inlet and develop underutilized properties, in an effort to make the state more globally competitive.  However, no money has been allocated for these projects. 

We explore House Bill 146, known as the “Back to Basics” bill, which would make learning cursive writing and the memorization of multiplication tables a requirement in North Carolina public schools.
