Legislature now in session with new leadership

The North Carolina General Assembly is now in session with new leadership. For the first time in over 100 years the Republicans control both houses. While some Republicans are very friendly to the environment, many are more friendly to business interest. (Some Democrats also put the desires of businesses ahead of the environment and even public health and safety) We will soon see what effect this change has on the prospects for environmental legislation. Conserve NC will be reporting from the General Assembly on environmental, or perhaps anti-environmental, legislation.
