Monday Quick Hits: Hot Policy Topics for This Week

North Carolina:
The interim continues at the General Assembly but as you will see in the next few weeks there are many committee meetings that will be happening.

Quick reminder, these committees do produce policy that we will see during the short session.

So this week we have the following on the calendar:
Monday, October 26, 2009
10:00 AM Child Fatality Taskforce - Unintentional Death Committee 1027/1128 LB

Tuesday, October 27, 2009
10:00 AM Poverty Reduction and Economic Recovery Study Commission 643 LOB

Wednesday, October 28, 2009
10:00 AM House Select Committee on High Speed Internet in Rural Areas 605 LOB

A bit of extra information on the Poverty Reduction and Economic Recovery Study Commission. Currently our state is witnessing major job losses in the area of health services. Many of these job losses are directly tied to the current state budget cuts. The members of this commission need to look at not only national data but at the realty of our state's budget cuts on creating a slower economic recovery in our state.

The children and the disabled and the sick are the one that suffer most from jobs lost in the health care industry. These jobs should be the last, not the first, cut in times of hardship.
