Annexation hearing pushed back to Wednesday

Video

Body

Reformers in the General Assembly will have to wait for their chance to change North Carolina’s 50-year-old annexation laws.

A House judiciary committee hearing scheduled for Tuesday was pushed back until Wednesday. There was no word on why.

The annexation hearing could take hours as lawmakers consider more than two dozen amendments and try shaping a measure that can pass this summer.

The measure does not allow affected residents to vote on whether to accept annexation; something sought by protest groups and opposed by municipal officials.
