Monday Quick Hits: Hot Policy Topics for This Week

A start of a new week of interim meetings is happening this week. Of interest, is the fact that these interim committees are currently chaired by Democrat leadership. With the swing to Republican leadership in both the House and Senate, these meetings are taking on a different task. Multiple times during the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on MH/DD/SAS there were comments from the chair regarding what the new leaders will need to look at and what challenges they face. We expect that to continue over the next two months.

Also of interest, the NC GOP members in the House and Senate will be holding their caucus on November 20th. During their caucus they will choose the new Speaker of the House and the new Senate President Pro Tempore. We will report on these choices once they are released.

Until then, here is the calendar for the week:
