Legislative Update: N.C. Department of Public Safety Deals Blow to Privatization

Work continued at the General Assembly this week with several hundred bills filed already and more expected by Wednesday. SEANC’s professional lobbying staff is reviewing all bills to ensure that state employees and retirees and the vital public services they provide are protected.

The highlight of the week, though, was not a bill, but rather the release of a report by the N.C. Department of Public Safety on the potential privatization of prison maintenance operations.

State employees play vital role for hearing and visually impaired

The public services that state employees provide are as diverse as the needs of North Carolina’s nearly 10 million residents. Among those are services to residents who are hearing or visually impaired.

This month, because May is known as Healthy Vision Month, as well as Better Hearing and Speech Month, SEANC is recognizing those state employees who work hard every day to make North Carolina a better place to live for people with vision, hearing and speech impairments.
