RALEIGH — The state agency that manages development on the North Carolina coast is canceling its April meeting at a resort because of restrictions on travel.

The North Carolina Coastal Resources Commission planned a meeting April 29-30 at Sea Trail Resort in Sunset Beach. A commission spokesman said the meeting was canceled because the state had ordered restrictions on travel because of declining state revenues.

The agency said public hearings scheduled for the meeting on proposed rule changes will be rescheduled. The commission may have its April meeting in another location, but spokesman Jamie Kritzer said no decision had been made.

School districts across the state could soon have more say on when classes start for students.

The House Education Committee began debate Tuesday on legislation permitting school systems to start school as early as the second Monday in August. Current state law requires districts to begin classes no sooner than August 25th.

A supporter of the bill said an earlier start would help students finish semester classes and take end-of-course tests before winter break.

The legislation would not change rules that require the school year to end on June 10.
