Gee, thanks Senator!

The Commerce Committee of the North Carolina Senate just sent out its offical notice for a meeting that will convene tomorrow morning at 11:00 at the General Assembly.

Sounds like a meeting that the chairman, Senator Harry Brown might have been thinking about for a while and in which there might be a fair bit of public interest.

The Senate Committee on Commerce will meet at the following time:
