The “North Carolina Freedom Park” will go up in downtown Raleigh.

Another signed measure distributes hundreds of millions of dollars more from North Carolina’s $3.5 billion share of federal coronavirus relief funds. And universities and colleges are getting relief from some COVID-19 litigation.

Cooper has 15 bills left on his desk that were generated by the General Assembly before they went home last week.
