Statement by North Carolina Pork Council on veto of House Bill 467
The North Carolina Pork Council is disappointed in Gov. Cooper’s veto of a bill that passed the legislature with bipartisan support.
The ratified bill strikes a balance in providing clarity and certainty to farmers while ensuring that property owners remain protected.
Our laws offer special protections for a wide range of industries – and farmers are among them. North Carolina’s pork producers follow stringent environmental regulations.
We encourage the legislature to override the veto in support of a vital sector of North Carolina’s economy.
