NC Lawmaker Sidesteps Bill Easing Beach Insurance

A North Carolina lawmaker has completely reworked legislation sought by coastal homeowners saddled with huge increases in their insurance premiums, deductibles and surcharges.

Democratic Sen. Julia Boseman of New Hanover County said Tuesday
she was giving way as legislative leaders work behind closed doors
to craft a deal between coastal interests and the insurance
industry.

A state Senate committee considered a Boseman bill that would have frozen the increased insurance costs. Residents along the North Carolina coast are facing homeowners premium increases of up
to 30 percent.

Instead, the bill was rewritten so that the state's Alcoholic Beverage Commission could stop forcing private clubs to have a waiting period for new members.
