A contentious N.C. House Bill that would affect county fire-protection tax revenues advanced to the House floor Thursday. House Bill 120 cleared the Rules and Operations committee. It is sponsored by three Triad Republican representatives, Debra Conrad and Donny Lambeth of Forsyth County and Julia Howard of Davie County. The bill is scheduled to be put on the House calendar for Monday’s session. The bill has been significantly altered twice since being introduced Feb. 19. The bill cleared the Insurance committee March 21 after one set of changes, and then the Finance committee Wednesday after another set of changes. Conrad, a former Forsyth commissioner, told the Rules committee that while HB120 is a public bill, which means it is subject to being vetoed by the governor, it is “specifically designed” for Forsyth.
