Keeping up with bills in the end game

As bills pass both house and make there way to and fro the Governor’s office (or in the case of local bills, become law immediately), the North Carolina General Assembly has several resources to keep up with new laws:

1) Bills about to be ratified — bills are usually ratified the next legislative day after they are ordered enrolled. Ratification is the stage where bills that have passed both houses have a true copy prepared and are signed by the presiding officer of each house. They are not yet law.

2) Bills pending on the Governor’s desk (this is usually not updated for about 12 hours after the bill is delivered or comes back from the Governor.

3) Enacted laws, showing those public bills  signed by the Governor in order of  bill number,  and showing all enacted laws in order of enactment date (includes public and local), and by bill number (also includes resolutions)

You can also find here a spreadsheet showing which General Statutes and uncodified session laws have been affected by new laws and bills pending ratification
