Tracking bills as the clock winds down

As the 2007 Regular Session of the North Carolina General Assembly winds down, there are a few bill tracking features on our website I’d like to point out:

1) Bill and joint resolutions that have been enacted, in order by enactment date, or by bill number. (136 as of June 23)

2) Public bills signed by the Governor.

3) Public bills vetoed by the Governor (move along, nothing here for this session, but a compendium of all vetoes since 1997)

4) Bills pending on the Governor’s desk (28 as of June 23)

5) Bills scheduled to be ratified (they have passed all parliamentary stages except signature by the presiding officers in the House and Senate). Ratification is the step before public bills go to the Governor or local bills become law.

6) Bill in conference (some sort of glitch here, nothing shows up, and I KNOW the budget is in conference).  UPDATE JUNE 24: FIXED!
7) General Statutes amended by bills enacted in 2007

Most of these reports are current within a day, but some actions Thursday evening and Friday (and the weekend, too) by the Governor are often not shown until Monday afternoon.

There also lots of other reports available on our bill reports page.
