Saturday, May 2, 2020, the General Assembly passed two COVID-19 relief bills. Senate Bill 704 addresses policy changes related to the pandemic, and House Bill 1043 addresses funding. The new laws became effective immediately. The whole process was marked with bi-partisan cooperation which we have not seen in Raleigh in many years. Read the full report from the Kochanek Law Group.

The North Carolina General Assembly arrived (some virtually) in Raleigh on Tuesday the 28th. The House had held virtual working group meetings for a month and the legislation filed on Monday reflected the discussions and drafts that were created in those groups. The mystery was on the Senate side where no public meetings or real information had been provided about how they intended to address the session. Now we know that Senators have been working behind the scenes in a bipartisan way so that by the next day their bill was unanimously approved. Read the full report from the Kochanek Law Group.

The General Assembly is working on a COVID response and is expected to convene for remote committee work on April 28 with voting to begin on April 30. After a package is passed, this session is expected to adjourn until July or August for the traditional "short" session when the impact on a budget will be more clear. Read the full report from the Kochanek Law Group.
