General Assembly Update
Last week marked the bill filing deadline in the NC House, and it prompted a flood of new legislation including 200 new bills on Wednesday alone. Among the legislation introduced was H715 sponsored by Reps. Bishop and Jeter. The bill would achieve the Board’s legislative goal of requiring insurers to honor the assignment of benefits to ambulance providers such as MEDIC.
In addition, Building Code Regulation Reform H255 passed the House. Last week, we continued to work with the bill sponsor and home building industry to improve the bill. As a result of those discussions, a provision that would have driven insurance rates higher by eliminating plan review for residential construction was removed. We are continuing to work with interested parties to tighten language in the legislation that currently would require Code Enforcement to conduct a complete inspection even if the project is clearly not complete. We will keep you informed of changes in the legislation as it moves through the Senate.
