Greetings From Raleigh 10-02-06

As you know, the 2006 short session of the North Carolina General Assembly ended two months ago, but the work continues in the district and in Raleigh. I was recently appointed to the Land and Water Study Commission which will consider the Land for Tomorrow initiative. I am also serving on the following interim committees: the Environmental Review Commission, the House Select Committee on Capital Punishment, the House Select Committee on Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the Legislative Committee on Global Climate Change, and the Study Commission on Land and Water Conservation.

I’m very proud of the progress we made during the short time we were in Raleigh this summer; some significant changes occurred in education, health care, the economy, and reducing crime. Several of the new laws went into effect on October 1, 2006, and others will take effect in the coming months. I will update you on those in future posts.

The Legislature will reconvene on Wednesday, January 24, 2007 at noon. During the interim, you can contact me via email at or, or by calling my Raleigh office at (919) 733-5771, or in Greensboro at 336-274 5574 You can also find additional information on the General Assembly at
