HB162

Legislation Could Jeopardize Future NC Rulemaking

Last week, the N.C. Senate approved the conference report of an administrative procedures bill (H.B. 162) that would prohibit state agencies and commissions from adopting regulations with an economic impact of more than $100 million over a five-year period and would require a supermajority of the rulemaking commission for  agencies and commissions to adopt regulations with an economic impact of $10 million or more over a five-year period.
