Legislative Brief


Notable Activity

    The General Assembly continued its work pace lull this week with few committees meeting and few bills considered. The House continues to work on its 2021–2022 budget which is expected to be released and passed by the House in early-mid August.

    With many members of the House and Senate set to attend the upcoming American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) annual conference, it is expected to be another slow week at the General Assembly next week as well.

    Legislation impacting counties which saw action this week include the following:


Bills of Note

    House Bill 273: Modify Builders Inventory Tax Exclusion — excludes from property taxation for up to three years any increase in value of residential real property attributable to new townhouse construction when held for sale by a builder. Current law already allows this property tax exclusion for single-family residences and duplexes. The bill passed the Senate Finance and Senate Rules committees this week and will likely be on the Senate floor for consideration early next week.


State Updates


    The NC Department of Health and Human Services updated the StrongSchoolsNC Public Health Toolkit this week to align with CDC guidance for K-12 schools. Effective July 30, there are updated masking, distancing, and cleaning guidelines.


Federal Updates


    EDA Announces Grant Opportunities for Local Governments
    The US Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) announced funding opportunities this week to implement the investment of $3 billion from the American Rescue Plan. Applications are available now. Read about the EDA funding opportunities HERE.
