NC General Assembly Watch
The NC General Assembly is in the long session in 2017. Bills introduced and laws passed have a direct and immediate effect on NC residents. This team is working to identify bills introduced and committees studying these bills and communicate action items as necessary.
The General Assembly (ncga.state.nc.us) is a bicameral legislature, consisting of the North Carolina House of Representatives and the North Carolina State Senate. The House has 120 members, while the Senate has 50.
The General Assembly meets in regular session (or the "long session") beginning in January of each odd-numbered year, and adjourns to reconvene the following even-numbered year for what is called the "Short Session." Though there is no limit on the length of any session, the "long session" typically lasts for 6 months, and the "short session" typically lasts for 6 weeks.
See Ballotpedia for an in-depth article about the NC General Assembly.

We are working to build a bipartisan coalition to support the creation of an independent redistricting commission whose directive will be to redraw districts strictly based on population density, and to ensure Equal and Just Representation.
Our goal is to have North Carolina Expand Medicaid coverage and accept federal expansion dollars, thereby improving access to health care services to all North Carolinians.
We collaborate with and support existing groups and individuals who are promoting free and fair elections in North Carolina to:
- increase statewide voter participation;
- provide voter education
- strengthen the principles of democracy in North Carolina.
We want to make sure that every eligible voter in NC has equal, unfettered and free access to the polls to the full extent provided by the Constitution of the United States.
