North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is threatening to veto a House bill on charter schools that would prevent teachers' names and pay from being disclosed publicly.
McCrory released a statement Monday asking the General Assembly to remove the provision, and the measure's sponsor now says he wants it out of the bill, too.
Mecklenburg County Republican Rep. Charles Jeter proposed the amendment. He said his idea was to prevent teachers from unnecessary exposure to public scrutiny, but that the proposal didn't do what he wanted it to.
The measure is a part of a larger bill changing the regulations of charter schools.
Before the governor sees the bill, the Senate will decide whether to approve it as is or make changes.
