NC General Assembly
03-30-2011 Legislative Calendar
Links to Bills and Live Audio Feeds

**5.23pm** Here is the audio of the first meeting in the process of redistricting. It consisted mainly of staff from the Research Division bringing the membership (minus the NC House members, who were debating a time sensitive bill...they will have a makeup meeting at a later date) up to speed on the legal requirements and the mechanics of the redistricting process. I learned a lot from the meeting, and I hope you will, too:

**8.54am** This calendar has been posted late this morning due to an overnight power outage and loss of Internet Service. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.






The new session of the North Carolina General Assembly is well underway and here is the very heavy 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



**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.
