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

The General Assembly has been working at a feverish pace all week, with both chambers holding marathon committee meetings and numerous bills receiving action. The House of Representatives spent the bulk of their week considering their budget package, while the Senate continued committee work in advance of next week’s crossover deadline.

There has also been action on important NC REALTORS® priorities.

Issue Spotlight: Opioid Epidemic

NC REALTORS® Partners with NC Attorney General to combat opioid crisis

In this week’s Issue Spotlight, we wanted to discuss something which is affecting every community across our state and nation: the growing opioid epidemic. Thousands of people from all walks of life across our state deal with the challenges resulting from addiction every day including countless in our own families and communities.

While a true solution to the epidemic is unclear, it is recognized that important steps can be taken to help limit access to prescription medications.
