Posted April 19

This is a shot of the entrance area to the N.C. Legislative Building.

— After a week off for Easter break, lawmakers dive right in on Wednesday, with more than 100 bills scheduled to be heard in 20 committee meetings.

Among the proposals under consideration are bills that would allow law enforcement to tow the vehicles of people found to be driving without a license and would impose a $200 fine for holding up traffic in the left lane of a highway.

Also on the docket are measures to loosen restrictions on how much craft brewers can sell without going through a distributor, prohibit school districts from suing counties, reform the state child welfare system and restrict wind farms near military facilities.
