RALEIGH -- Governor Pat McCrory signed an Executive Order this week finalizing the boundary line between the state of North Carolina and South Carolina from Polk to Brunswick County.

"This Executive Order is a culmination of more than 20 years of work from leaders in North and South Carolina," said Governor McCrory. "I am proud of our efforts to settle this issue and our strong partnership with Governor Nikki Haley and our neighbors in South Carolina."

Efforts to clarify the boundary between North and South Carolina began in 1995, and in May 2013, the Joint North Carolina/South Carolina Boundary Commission completed its work to settle the boundary line. In June 2016, Governor McCrory signed legislation identifying the new border which goes into effect on January 1, 2017. The bill addressed tax, education and property concerns for several impacted communities.
