This morning the North Carolina House of Representatives passed a joint resolution with the North Carolina Senate to adjourn the 2015 long session. With a vote of 110-1, the House concluded their legislative work for the regular session at 4:17 in the morning of September 30, 2015. Senate Bill 721: Adjournment Resolution designates the General Assembly to reconvene on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7:00 P.M.
“I am tremendously proud of the work that my colleagues in the House were able to accomplish during this long session,” stated Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland), who finishes his first regular session as Speaker of the North Carolina House. “We were able to uphold many promises that we made to the people of North Carolina early in the year, including – raising starting teacher pay, increasing support to our schools, implementing pro-growth policies, cutting bureaucratic waste and red tape, and putting more money back into the taxpayer’s wallet.”
