Statement from Sen. Paul Newton on Veto of Clean Energy Bill

Raleigh, N.C. — Sen. Paul Newton (R-Cabarrus) released the following statement in response to Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of Senate Bill 678, “Clean Energy/Other Changes”:

“Gov. Cooper’s hardline opposition to nuclear power is a slap in the face to North Carolina’s energy industry. He would rather glorify the Green New Deal than strengthen energy production in our state. I look forward to overriding his veto and ensuring that North Carolina can have a reliable electrical grid.”
