Legislative Update

The following bills affecting Coastal Management have been introduced in the General Assembly:
 
SB 22 - APA rules, increasing costs prohibition:Prevents state agencies from passing new rules that would result in substantial additional costs for those being regulated, with some specific exceptions related to threats to public health and safety, federal regulations and court orders. “Substantial estimated additional costs” is defined as the aggregate financial impact on all persons subject to the rule of at least $500,000 in a 12-month period. The act would expire July 1, 2012.

HB 116 - Delineate Coastal Wetlands Riparian Buffers: Treats coastal wetlands and marshlands as part of the protective riparian buffer, rather than part of surface waters, when measuring a protective riparian buffer in either the Neuse River Basin or the Tar-Pamlico River Basin.

HB 237- Economic Impact/Regulatory LegislationRequires economic impact statements on all bills introduced to the General Assembly that propose regulatory changes, similar to the fiscal notes that agencies must prepare during rulemaking.
