NC House Update - August 2015
Jon Hardister
10:45 AM, August 4th, 2015

Open at source Share

The 2015 session of the NC General Assembly is underway as we enter the month of August. We are working to finalize the state budget and to pass legislation before the session adjourns. There is no set date for adjournment, but we hope to be out of session within the next few weeks.

Finalizing the State Budget

The House and Senate have appointed conferees to work out differences in the budget (I am honored to be appointed as a conferee on the House side). There are a few disparities that we are working to resolve, such as funding for teacher assistants; driver's education funding; Medicaid reform; changes to the state tax code; and changes to the local sales tax redistribution.

It is normal for the House and Senate to have disagreements when it comes to the state budget. When you are dealing with a multi-billion dollar spending plan, legislators are not going to agree on every detail. Our goal is to reconcile our differences and pass a balanced budget that spends taxpayer dollars responsibly.

Completing Committee Work

House and Senate committees are completing their work as we approach the end of session this year. We are working to move bills before the session adjourns. Although a lot of focus is on the state budget, there are numerous bills that are still being considered.

Regulatory Reform Bill

HB 651 - Appraisal Board Recordkeeping and Background Checks - passed the legislature last week and will soon be signed by Governor Pat McCrory. This is a regulatory reform bill that provides relief for small businesses and independent contractors. I am honored to be the lead sponsor of this bill and I am pleased that it passed the legislature with strong bipartisan support.

Note: I have another regulatory reform bill (HB 126 - Mortgage Origination Support Registration) that is currently under consideration in the Senate.

When I ran for office, I cited regulatory reform as a top priority. This is an issue that I will continue to focus on in the legislature. We need to maintain a sound business environment in order to create jobs and grow the economy.

Presidential Primary Moves to March

The North Carolina presidential primary has been moved to March 15th. This was done in order to give us a seat at the table in the presidential primary process. Currently, the presidential primaries are often decided by the time North Carolina holds its primary, which is in May. By moving the presidential primary to March, our citizens will now have an influence as to who the political parties choose to be their presidential nominee.

Connect NC Bond

Governor Pat McCrory is traveling the state to promote his "Connect NC" bond, which would be a roughly $1.5 billion general obligation bond to provide funding for transportation projects. We have not had a general obligation bond since the year 2000 and interest rates are currently low, which means it may not be a bad time to consider this proposal. The legislature is working to see if we can come up with a responsible plan. Any general obligation bond the legislature proposes would have to be approved by voters on a statewide ballot.

Award Recognition

It was an honor to receive the "2015 Charter Champion Award" from the NC Association of Public Charter Schools. This award was in recognition of work that I have done to help support our public charter school system. My belief is that we should support all areas of public education and provide children with more opportunities to learn. 


Historic Gibsonville Caboose Dedication

Earlier this month I had the honor of participating in a ribbon cutting for the historic railroad caboose in Gibsonville. The caboose symbolizes the history of Gibsonvile, which derives its name from Joseph Gibson, who was involved in expanding the railroad system in North Carolina. The caboose also reminds us of the important role that transportation plays in driving economic development. 


More Updates Soon

Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the end of session. Meanwhile, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns. I hope you are having an excellent summer.

These Fleeting Moments
The Secularity
10:46 PM, August 3rd, 2015

Open at source Share

54,720. That's how many minutes are left.

For almost a year I've heard the church bells ring on the hour. I've walked past the clock tower at Cardiff City Hall every day, it's face staring at me. The seconds have turned into minutes, minutes into hours, and eventually I find myself wondering where all the time has gone. So I slumber in the dream, waiting for the alarm clock to go off. It's just before dawn in the middle of August. The sun is sharp here, like a razor on the skin, then a cold breeze blows over my burning flesh. I can hear the door shutting behind me, and I can feel gravity pulling me into reality.

54,719.
It seems like only yesterday that we all began as strangers. Strangers who became friends, friends whose loyalty has made us family. The conversations, the tears, the screams, all are fading into memories. These experiences now depart each of us in these final moments of a year that has delivered us from the past. Soon our year here will take its final bow. Some of us will go home, returning to different cultures around the world. Some of us will move on to the next chapter of our lives... But, I'm not sure any of us will truly ever leave this place completely.

54,718.
As I walked down the cobbled streets of Cardiff today, the stones occasionally budging under my step, my shadow chasing me, I turned to a friend and we tried to put into context the events of the last eleven months. There are no words to describe it. This experience is solely owned by those who lived it. Should any one ever ask what happened this last year, we would reply simply, ambiguously, for there are no words to describe those forces which remain unseen and that have affected our lives. The story of us is doomed to silence, for any attempt at disclosure would surely seem like madness to those who did not witness it.

54,717.
So we make the most of what's left. We console each other in our impending conclusion. Days turn into nights, and our tribe dwindles one by one, and those who remain seal the circle, holding tighter onto one another, until at last, the vacuum of the universe which delivered us here returns us to those places where we belong. There is no seeking asylum in fairy tales, no waiting for Superman, and some how though we're tormented by these realizations, we're also stronger for them. We're dangerous now. We're saving ourselves now.

54,716
So we count the stars. We run to the finish. Our final montage begins, time slows, and the music plays. Yet this isn't the end, it's just the road home. In these fleeting moments, we stand on the edge of our fears, holding to one final resolution. We're letting go. Minute by minute, second by second, as friends slip from our grasp and that which defines us fades into what we become. This is the difference in our former characters. We willingly fall to turn fleeting moments into new beginnings. Not because we're certain it won't hurt when we hit the bottom of this abyss, but that we're now strong enough to get back up and start again.

54,715
In the end, we don't remember the minutes, we remember the moments.
