The state legislature is having two Special Sessions this week. The first was called for by Governor Pat McCrory on December 9th [PROCLAMATION] to address disaster relief for Hurricane Matthew in the east and the Wildfires in the west. During this session, the state legislature passed The Disaster Recovery Act of 2016 [SEE TEXT] [DOWNLOAD PDF] [VOTING HISTORY/VERSIONS].
The state legislature then called a fourth Special Session [PROCLAMATION] for the balance of the week.
The state legislature will convene today, with the NC Senate [LINK] beginning work at 8:30 am and the NC House [LINK] beginning at 9:30 am. Various committees will also be meeting today. A calendar of scheduled legislative activity along with links to where you can listen online to our state legislators as they go about their tasks is posted at the end of this article. I plan on listening and recording what I can, so be sure to check back later today and see what audio I've managed to upload.
