Welcome to the "On The Road Report," a monthly glimpse of the images and activities of North Carolina's Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest as he travels our great State.
ALERT--I Support Teachers License Plate Applications Are Available:
Throughout the General Assembly's short session, Lt. Governor Dan Forest and Senator Jerry Tillman championed the North Carolina Education Endowment. A fund to supplement teacher pay in NC. This measure was included in the approved budget and is now law. One element of the NC Education Endowment is the "I Support Teachers" license plates, from which the proceeds go directly to the Endowment to supplement teacher compensation.
By law, a certain amount of applications and accompanied payments are required for the plates to begin the printing process. We have opened the application process today and hope to meet that requirement very soon.
