Perdue Gets Her First Bill To Sign Into Law

Governor Beverly Perdue plans to sign a bill into law for the first time.

Perdue said she will sign a bill Wednesday during a public ceremony that will allow Bill Harrison, her choice to lead the public school system, to serve on the State Board of Education.

State lawmakers gave final approval to the bill.

Current law allows only one public schools employee to serve on
the board. The bill would allow two.

The Legislature already approved laws this year that don't need
Perdue's signature.

Perdue wants Harrison, currently the Cumberland County schools
superintendent, to sit on the state board while also serving as
chief executive officer of the public school system.

Harrison is expected to be sworn in as a board member and elected chairman Thursday.
