NC Legislative Calender for 01-12-2009

Here are the scheduled meetings today in Raleigh for the North Carolina General Assembly:

10:00 AM in 1228/1327 LB

Child Fatality Taskforce

There appears to be no webpage or meeting minutes for this group on the General Assembly website.

The NC-DHHS website gives this overview:

N.C. Child Fatality Task Force

The Child Fatality Task Force was created in 1991 by the General Assembly to study the cause of death in childhood and to develop a system for the multidisciplinary review of child deaths. The impetus for creating the Task Force was to address the problem of child abuse, which is responsible for about 60 deaths in North Carolina each year, but the focus of the Task Force quickly expanded to include the other 97 percent of child deaths as well.
