NC General Assembly
03-24-2011 Legislative Calendar
Links to Bills and Live Audio Feeds

**9.42am** The NC House Finance Committee met to discuss various bills repealing or suspending annexations of various "bad actor" municipalities in North Carolina. Here is the audio of most of that meeting:

And here is the audio of the portion of that meeting dealing with a notoriously "bad actor" in the western region of North Carolina, Asheville. The community of Biltmore Lake is seeking to have their annexation into the City of Asheville repealed. The committee gave the bill a favorable report. Here is the audio of that portion of the meeting:

The new session of the North Carolina General Assembly is well underway and here is the schedule for today. Since this is Thursday, most of the action is taking place in the morning in order to facilitate an early dismissal for the weekend. 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



**note** I have eliminated linking to a PDF of the current version of bills to save time when preparing the post every morning. The PDFs are available by clicking the bill number and downloading them from the NC General Assembly website.
