NC General Assembly
06-18-2011 Legislative Calendar
Links to Bills and Live Audio Feeds



The North Carolina General Assembly is currently preparing to recess until the middle of July and here is the schedule for today. There are no committees meeting today, only sessions of the NC Senate (which has already met and recessed until July) and the NC House are currently scheduled.


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
