We often get requests from the media (and lobbyists, members, and the public) that go like this “Do you have a list of laws effective _____(fill in month)?”. Editors especially like lists of laws effective January 1.
Our legislative library has put together and posted a list of North Carolina laws enacted in 2007 effective each month from July 2007 through January 2008. It covers through the extra session held September 10-11. It’s a 28 page .pdf file.
Here’s how many laws become effective each month:
July 2007: 40
August 2007: 9
September 2007: 7
October 2007: 69
November 2007: none
December 2007: 45
January 2008: 40
The list is in order for each month by chapter number (chronological) and has a link to the text of the law and the bill status report.
