NC Sierra Club Statement on the NC Senate Passage of Senate Bill 334

RALEIGH – Earlier today the NC Senate approved S 334, Dorothea Dix Lease. This bill will soon go to the NC House for their consideration.

Molly Diggins, state director of the North Carolina Sierra Club, issued the following statement:

“We are disappointed that the Senate today voted to condemn a valid contract between the City of Raleigh and the State that was entered into only months ago and would have created a destination park in Raleigh for all North Carolinians to enjoy.”

“With today’s vote, the Senate has thrown away an unique opportunity for the economic and cultural benefit of all residents of our state. Once again, we are counting on the House to employ due diligence and more deliberately attend to the best interests of all North Carolinians.”
