Governor Roy Cooper's signed a bill that will reduce the number of UNC-system Board of Governors members from 32 to 24 by 2019.  It was the first bill signed of his governorship.
 
The N.C. General Assembly will elect 12 members during this year’s regular legislative session, who will join the previously elected 16 members.
 
In a statement, Speaker of the House Tim Moore said the new law will streamline the board resulting in a more efficient operation. 
 
“University officials should focus on students and classrooms first, and streamlining the UNC Board of Governors will improve their ability to provide oversight and serve stakeholders in higher education,” he said.
 
Governor Cooper did not release a statement on the bill.
