This morning the North Carolina House of Representatives passed a joint resolution with the North Carolina Senate to adjourn the 2015 long session. With a vote of 110-1, the House concluded their legislative work for the regular session at 4:17 in the morning of September 30, 2015. SB-721: Adjournment Resolution designates the General Assembly to reconvene on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 7:00 P.M.
“I am tremendously proud of the work that my colleagues in the House were able to accomplish during this long session,” stated Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland), who finishes his first regular session as Speaker of the North Carolina House. “We were able to uphold many promises that we made to the people of North Carolina early in the year, including – raising starting teacher pay, increasing support to our schools, implementing pro-growth policies, cutting bureaucratic waste and red tape, and putting more money back into the taxpayer’s wallet. I am more honored than ever to be serving as Speaker of the House, and thank my Caucus for their continued support and trust in me.”
“Through the hard work of our Caucus, we made this session successful for North Carolina,” said House Majority Leader Mike Hager (R-Rutherford). “We passed policies that made it easier to grow the economy, educate our children, and help more North Carolinians become prosperous.”
“I think we will be able to look back on the work we have done this session and be proud,” added Rep. David Lewis (R-Harnett), Chairman of the House Rules Committee. “The House was able to reach a conservative budget agreement, implement further tax reform, and provide businesses with tools to cultivate a great work environment in North Carolina. North Carolina will continue to come back, stronger than ever.”
