NC General Assembly 09-12-2011 Legislative Calendar
Links to Bill Texts and Live Audio Feeds

**7.39pm** Here is the last three hours of the debate on the Marriage Amendment (I missed the first few minutes) in the NC House. It eventually passed 75-42.



The Mountain Xpress has posted video of the debate, as well as linking to this post. Thanks guys!


**2.12** Here is the audio of the Marriage Amendment being discussed, then passed out of the Rules and Operation of the NC Senate this afternoon. It now goes to the floor of the NC House.



**1.08pm** Here is the audio of a very short committee meeting that took place in Room 544. I believe it was the House Finance Committee. The audio was so bad that I could barely understand what was being said. 



**12.57pm** Please note the changes in the legislative calendar. The new calendar is at the bottom of the page. The Marriage Amendment Bill will now be discussed in Room 425, which is not wired for sound...so I will not be able to record the meeting. 





The North Carolina General Assembly will convene today in accordance with the Adjournment Resolution here is the schedule for today. There are also a couple of committees meeting today, and sessions of the NC Senate and the NC House are currently scheduled for noon today. They are expected to work the process of continuing to override some of the bills that the Governor has vetoed while they were adjourned. 



If you cannot listen to these meetings live, check back later to see if I have. I currently plan to listen to the Judiciary I committee meeting scheduled for 1.30 to 3.30 this afternoon. If I do, I'll post the audio (and a download link) for the meeting at the top of this page. 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
