Three NCBA sections combine their expertise to provide updates and answers to questions regarding 2017 legislative actions and related cases.

Learn what the General Assembly changed in clarifying or expanding its power vis-à-vis the governor and executive branch agencies, the judiciary and judicial system, and local governments.

Review the practical effects of those legislative changes and how the judicial and executive branches and local governments are responding.

Hear what the General Assembly has (or has not) changed with regard to health law, environmental and natural resources law, occupational licensing, and state and local government.

Planned by the NCBA Administrative Law, Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Law and Government & Public Sector Sections
