Courage is not the absence of fear. It is going forward with the face of fear.
NC General Assembly Watch
The NC General Assembly begins a short session on May 16. 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.
