Welcome to This Week at the Capital, your detailed breakdown of the legislation that matters most to your business. The NC Chamber tracks the bills our advocacy team is monitoring, in accordance with our 2023 legislative agenda, describing where those bills are in the legislative process and whether we support or oppose them on your behalf.

Throughout the legislative session, bills of high importance to the business community are added under one of the three pillars of North Carolina Vision 2030, the NC Chamber Foundation’s strategic road map for our state’s future. These pillars include Education and Talent SupplyCompetitive Business Climate, and Infrastructure and Growth. Votes and sponsorships on the legislation listed here will ultimately be considered for inclusion in How They Voted, our post-session legislative report card.

While the House and Senate have convened for committee meetings, veto overrides, and budget negotiations, we do not expect to see a budget until after Labor Day. Your NC Chamber Government Affairs team continues to monitor and advocate for outstanding items from our 2023 Legislative Agenda.
