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.
