NCACC Weekly Update — January 21, 2022 | Beaufort County Now | The General Assembly returned to Raleigh this week to act on two pieces of legislation including HB 605

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
News Release:

    The General Assembly returned to Raleigh this week to act on two pieces of legislation including HB 605, which would delay 2022 primary elections and is in response to uncertainty regarding the legal status of the new congressional and state legislative maps. Those maps were upheld unanimously last week by a bipartisan three-judge appellate panel, a decision that was appealed to the North Carolina Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the maps on February 2, 2022 and it is unclear when the Court may issue a final ruling on the maps.

    At this time, it is uncertain when the General Assembly may reconvene the 2021 session and take more public action, particularly while the new congressional and state legislative maps are under consideration by the Supreme Court.

    Other Bills of Note

    House Bill 605 2022 Primary Date - Sets Tuesday, June 7, 2022, as the date of the primary in 2022. Under the legislation, the filing period will run from March 24, 2022, to April 1, 2022. Any person who filed a notice of candidacy during the December 2021 filing period (and did not withdraw that notice of candidacy before the filing period was closed by order of the court) will be deemed to have filed during this time. The bill passed the House and the Senate along party lines this week and now heads to the Governor for his consideration. It is unclear if the General Assembly would have the votes necessary to override a veto should the Governor choose to do so.

    Senate Bill 219 Surveyor Lic. & Ed. Req's/Constr. Contract Rev's - Makes various changes to the design-build contracting process. The legislation passed the General Assembly this week and now heads to the Governor for his consideration.
