New Law Conforming NC Disabilities Act on the Way to the Governor

Good News! The NC General Assembly passed and sent to the Governor SB384. This bill conforms the state law with recent changes to the federal ADA Amendments Act of 2008. Governor Perdue is expected to sign the bill into law.

With mounting public pressure the NC House delayed a vote on HB115, the state Health Exchange Bill. The NewsObserver reported, Rep. Dockham, (the bills sponsor) indicated that members of the Republican caucus had some questions regarding the bill before bringing it to a full vote on the House floor.

Last week, the NC GOP leadership filed a Friend of the Court brief. The brief supports the recent Florida decision overturning the Affordable Care Act. The case is being reviewed in the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta, Georgia.
