RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Legislation addressing historic preservation, severe allergic reactions and sex education in North Carolina’s middle schools are now the law.
Gov. Pat McCrory’s office said he signed seven bills Tuesday. He now has fewer than 25 pending on his desk from this year’s General Assembly session.
One bill sets up rules on how places like hotels, summer camps and restaurants can obtain epinephrine auto-injectors used to stop allergic reactions in patrons caused by bees and certain foods. Schools already are required to maintain the pens.
Public school sex education in middle school now has to include instruction on the dangers of sex trafficking.
Another new law allows local governments to lend or give money for rehabilitating historic structures. It’s separate from historic preservation state tax credits restored in this year’s budget.
