North Carolina Legislative Report - January 30, 2015

January 30, 2015

The General Assembly convened for the 2015 legislative session on January 14.  Lawmakers returned to Raleigh on January 28th to begin the session in earnest. The MVA Public Affairs Legislative Report on North Carolina will be distributed weekly to keep you up to date on the latest legislative issues facing the state.

The Joint Legislative Transportation Oversight Committee was the only committee to meet this week. So far, the long session has been off to a slower start than the blistering pace set during 2014 short session. MVA Public Affairs expects to see more legislative action following the Governor’s address Tuesday.
