**note** The Appropriations Act of 2011 was passed this weekend with a veto-proof super majority with the help of several Democrats crossed over the aisle and voted with Republicans to make this the first bipartisan budget in decades in North Carolina. Download PDF of budget. See status history and voting record on HB200 that includes votes on all amendments. This is also the earliest in my memory that a state budget has been sent to the Governor to sign.
The session of the North Carolina General Assembly is well underway and here is the schedule for today. There are lots of committees meeting today, and there are sessions of the NC Senate and the NC House scheduled also. 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. I have also included links below the calendar to assist you in keeping up with developments in the Appropriations Act of 2011 (HB 200) as it winds it's way to passage.
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 besubscribing to their podcasts anyway. I do.
