$2 Billion Bond Act Goes to Voters in March

CHARLOTTE, NC — State leaders are asking voters to say yes to a $2 billion bond package that will help fund college buildings, state parks and other projects. $90 million of that would go to build a new science lab at UNC Charlotte.

It’s part of the Connect NC Bond Act. Governor Pat McCrory signed the act on the Charlotte campus back in October.

“This is an investment in our future,” said Charlotte Chamber President Bob Morgan. “No tax increase is required. It’s the kind of thing that will make North Carolina attractive to those who already live here.”

Central Piedmont Community College will also get $9 million for projects.

The Bond Act will be on a statewide ballot in March.
