Gov. Roy Cooper recently signed House Bill 200 into law with provisions intended to aid victims of Hurricane Dorian.

The preamble of the bill states that it is intended to also provide funds for "resiliency measures against future storms."

State Sen. Bob Steinberg (R-Edenton) posted about the bill on his Facebook page after the bill passed both the state House of Representatives and Senate.

Steinberg said the bill includes $17.8 million in state funds to match federal assistance, $5 million to remove debris from waterways, $1.8 million for watershed restoration and a pump station in Hyde County, $1.7 million to repair the Ocracoke School in Hyde County, and $5.2 million for building repairs at Elizabeth City State University.

"I cannot state enough the teamwork that went into this bill,” Steinberg said. "Special thanks to Sen. Brent Jackson [R-Autryville] and Rep. Chuck McGrady [R-Hendersonville] who were the conference leaders on this bill.

“I'm also really blessed to have a couple wonderful teammates for Northeastern North Carolina in Reps. Bobby Otho Hanig [R-Powells Point] and Ed Goodwin [R-Edenton].”
