Agenda 2009: Building a Healthier, More Resilient North Carolina

Released today, the Justice Center’s 2009 Legislative Agenda is a comprehensive approach designed to solve problems that matter to North Carolina’s working families. The agenda consists of numerous policy options that constitute steps forward toward the goal of opportunity and prosperity for all.

Also today, we’ve published and distributed the first edition of the Justice Center’s Legislative Bulletin. The bulletin is a short-form briefing on issues of the day designed for lawmakers and legislative staff.

The first issue introduces and expands upon selected elements of the 2009 legislative agenda. The bulletin details selected examples of policy approaches that make sense in today’s budget climate — issues like homeowner and tenant protections, children’s health care, and necessary support for unemployed North Carolinians.

In future bulletins, we’ll offer specific policy analysis and recommendations on timely issues. A new legislative bulletin will be produced every two weeks at first, with a view to a weekly publishing schedule in the future. Read the first Legislative Bulletin online now.
