Legislature Adjourns

The North Carolina legislature adjourned it’s long session around 2:00 a.m. this morning. However, the adjournment resolution adds two more sessions this year:

  • August 3 – This session would mainly focus on overriding vetoes from Governor Cooper, but could also include bills that are currently in conference, nominations, and other topics.
  • September 6 – This session could involve appointments, veto overrides, referendums on constitutional amendments, and impeachment proceedings.

This means that many of our legislative battles are not over due to this extension.

The resolution also adds a November 15 deadline for court ordered legislative redistricting.

A short overview of all of our high priority topics for this session will be posted next week. However, the legislative blog is up to date on all the movement of the bills NCMS  tracked this session.
