On Friday, January 20, join the North Carolina Bar Association for a seminar titled Regulating the Regulators: New Legislative Restrictions On State and Local Governments.
It will be held at the Charlotte Convention Center, 501 South College Street in Charlotte, North Carolina, starting at 8:50 a.m. and ending at 4:35 p.m.
In North Carolina, legislators took unprecedented steps to limit the authority of state and local governments, which will significantly impact the regulators as well as companies and individuals who work with them. At this program, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the overhauled rule-making framework and the new fiscal constraints on state regulations. Participants will learn how administrative law judges’ new role as final decision-makers impacts contested cases challenging state agency actions, as well as insights into the most dramatic changes to environmental regulation, including the federal analogue limitation for present and future rules. This seminar will help participants get up to speed on the many changes to local government authority, including land use and zoning, annexation and extraterritorial jurisdiction.
Among the speakers are Hon. Julian Mann, III, chief administrative law judge, NC Office of Administrative Hearings; Frayda S. Bluestein, associate dean for faculty development, UNC School of Government; Anthony Fox, Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein, LLP; and Jessica Marlies, Office of General Counsel, NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
