NC Coastal Resources Commission http://wunc.org en House Committee Changes Commissions Bill http://wunc.org/post/house-committee-changes-commissions-bill <p>House lawmakers have substantially rewritten a controversial bill that would revamp and eliminate many state commissions. The Senate's version of <a href="http://www.ncleg.net/Applications/BillLookUp/LoadBillDocument.aspx?SessionCode=2013&amp;DocNum=802&amp;SeqNum=0">S-B 10</a> would have cleared out the membership of the Utilities, Industrial, Coastal Resources and Wildlife Resources Commissions, among others. And it would have eliminated 12 special Superior Court judge positions. But on Wednesday, a House Committee made some big changes to its version of the bill.

It’s in response to a report released by the <a href="http://dcm2.enr.state.nc.us/CRC/crc.htm" target="_blank">North Carolina Coastal Resource Commission</a>, predicting that the sea level will rise 39 inches by 2100.
