RALEIGH - Gov. Pat McCrory has signed into law a wide-ranging regulatory bill he says will cut burdensome rules for businesses and government red tape.
The anchor of the 59-page law signed Friday is a new process by which state officials review rules to carry out environmental, health and labor laws among others and repeal them if they are found unnecessary.
The bill also requires all hotels to install carbon monoxide detectors in each room, following three poisoning deaths in the same Boone motel room this year.
McCrory signed two executive orders to address concerns he had with the bills on clear-cutting around billboards and garbage trucks that could leak liquid waste.
McCrory has until Sunday night to act on bills on his desk or they'll automatically become law.
