Lawmakers to hold 2nd hearing on rules deemed an “undue burden” (video)

This upcoming Monday (March 21st) the legislature’s newly formed Joint Regulatory Review Committee [1] will hold its second public hearing in Charlotte. The committee, made up of 9 senators and 9 representatives, will receive input regarding rules and rule-making procedures that are “an impediment to private sector job creation.”

This weekend on News & Views, the Environmental Defense Fund’s [4] Jane Preyer discusses some of the anti-environmental initiatives emerging from this legislative session including Senate Bill 110 [5], which allows hardened structures on North Carolina’s beaches.
