NC Lawmakers Making New Laws Before Leaving

The North Carolina General Assembly is cleaning up several laws approved this year before leaving town Wednesday, but a measure to let voters decide whether to cap time served by legislative leaders may have to wait.

A House committee agreed Tuesday to a compromise with senators on the tweaks to new laws, including the delay of a new requirement for young drivers to record hours they drive before they get a full provisional license until Jan. 1. The bill also would allow bail bondsmen to access court records online for a fee.

It looks less likely House and Senate Republicans will agree on a constitutional amendment limiting how long the House speaker and Senate leader can serve. The Senate hasn't appointed negotiators.

The Legislature could return to Raleigh in November.

    You need an EPA approval prior to flushing....Sounds like NY flushed the toilet with the democrat running in Weiners position....That will require a Hazmat team.

    Making more laws that we have to follow and they don't? With all the laws and regulations on the books now it is surprising we are allowed to go to the bathroom without filing a written report or having to get a permit for each visit.
