Links to Bills and Live Audio Feeds
Updated with 20 Gallons of Beer Audio

**1.55pm** I've included audio from three committee meetings today. Scroll down to 8.30am, 10.00 and 1.00pm to listen or download MP3s of them. -TP


**11.14am**  Jonathan Williams, Chairman of NC Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission, gave some amazing stats during his presentation this morning (full audio of his presentation is embedded in the calendar. Here is an excerpt where he relayed that on a per capita basis, North Carolinians consumed 20 gallons of beer. (I don't think I've consumed that much in my life). Here is the snippet of that audio:

The new session of the North Carolina General Assembly is well underway and here is the schedule for today. Several committees are scheduled to meet today, as well as sessions of the NC Senate and the NC House. I have included links to bill histories, downloadable PDFs of the current versions of bills and links so that you can listen to the audio feed of these meetings live...provided they are taking place in a room that is wired for audio streaming to the Internet. 


If you cannot listen to these meetings live, check back later to see if I have. If I have, I'll post the audio (and a download link) for the meeting in the calendar. You can also follow what is happening in the NC General Assembly by keeping an eye on the hashtag #ncga on Twitter.

If I haven't been able to listen, please check with Voter Radio. You should already be subscribing to their podcasts anyway. I do. ʘ‿ʘ
