"Helping rural North Carolina thrive is one of my top priorities," Governor Roy Cooper said. "Families in rural communities aren't looking for mandates from Raleigh - they want state government to listen and help when asked. We'll listen to local leaders to make sure they're getting the support they need to help their communities prosper."
