Legislature Returns for Special Florence Session

RALEIGH – State lawmakers returned to Jones Street Tuesday to begin assembling disaster relief packages in response to the incredible impacts of Hurricane Florence that ravaged the coast and river basins of North Carolina last month.

The state senate and house convene to read in specific bills, House Bill 3 and House Bill 4 (in addition to senate bills) and refer them to committee. That committee is a joint appropriations committee scheduled to begin later Tuesday morning for the purpose of allocating funds for relief.

Other business before the General Assembly will be adjustments to school schedules for districts that were forced out of class for weeks after the storm.
