What’s on the General Assembly’s mind this week?

2019-2020 NC REALTORS® Legislative Agenda

As you have heard over the past few weeks, we are making great progress on legislation impacting association health plans. On Tuesday, Senate Bill 86 “Small Business Healthcare Act” passed out of its last Senate committee and proceeded to the Senate floor. The bill received votes on Wednesday and Thursday, passing by votes of 40-8 and 38-8 respectively. You can see how your Senator voted here by clicking "PASS" in the vote section on the right side of the page.

We are very appreciative of the support of Senators Dan Bishop, Joyce Krawiec, and Chuck Edwards on this important issue.

The bill now moves on to the House of Representatives.

NC REALTORS® State of Real Estate

Keynote Speaker Announcement

NC REALTORS® State of Real Estate is back and better than ever this year. We will return to historic downtown Wilmington, April 11 and 12 for an in-depth discussion of one of the biggest issues facing our industry: the state of housing. Make plans to join us for local tours, panels featuring nationally-recognized experts like Dr. Lawrence Yun from NAR, and opportunities to network with fellow REALTORS® and thought leaders from across the state.

We are also proud to announce our keynote speaker, announce author, professor, blogger and activist, Ilya Somin.

Ilya Somin is a professor of law at George Mason University whose research focuses heavily on property and constitutional law. His work has been published in many popular press outlets including the Wall Street Journal, CNN and USA Today. He is considered a leading national authority on property law.

During his keynote session titled “Zoning vs. Affordable Housing,” Somin will discuss the impact of land use regulations on housing supply, affordability and economic growth. Land use regulations can make housing more expensive and restrict the growth of successful metropolitan areas. What does this mean for the future of real estate in North Carolina?
