I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

NC General Assembly
06-15-2011 Legislative Calendar
Links to Bills and Live Audio Feeds

Early this morning, the NC House voted 73-46 to override the Governor's veto of the state budget. All five conservative Democrats who previously voted to pass the bi-partisan budget reaffirmed their vote early this morning. The bill now goes to the NC Senate, where there is also a veto-proof majority for this bill. [See history of votes on the bill] Here is a short video from WRAL of that after-midnight vote:

Now, on to today's legislative calendar:

The North Carolina General Assembly is currently in session 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. 

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. ʘ‿ʘ
