The NC General Assembly reconvened this week and got right down to business — although in unusual circumstances due to the COVID-19 social distancing requirements. The NCMS lobbying team is working remotely to advocate on our legislative priorities as the House and Senate members debate how best to address the pandemic both through new policies and appropriations. As of this morning, negotiations are ongoing, and will likely continue over Saturday and Sunday and possibly into Monday. Watch your email over the weekend for updates on what legislative package around COVID-19 response the General Assembly may ultimately vote on and send to the Governor for his signature.
