Republican Pat McCrory has signed his first bill as North Carolina governor.

The first law to get McCrory's approval requires the State Board of Education develop by the fall of 2014 new diplomas that make clear a student is ready for college, ready a vocational career, or both. The bill received final approval from the General Assembly last week.

McCrory was at Randolph Community College's industrial center for the bill signing Monday. The bill's primary sponsor is from Randolph County.

The bill also tells the Board of Education to look at ways to make it easier to license vocational and technical teachers.

The new law fits well into McCrory's campaign platform about public schools preparing students for the work world.
