This afternoon I attended the first lien law “Stakeholders’ Meeting” of the North Carolina General Assembly’s 2013 Regular Session. The purpose of today’s meeting was to give folks in support of and opposition to proposed legislation that would limit the state’s new lien agent notice requirements to one- and two-family dwelling units 30 minutes per side to argue their respective cases.
I spent just under ten minutes of the “pro” side’s time making an argument that I’ve memorialized in the letter attached, below. To read a larger version of the letter, click the expand button in the lower right-hand corner of the Scribd application.
This issue is still very much ripe for discussion, and so I invite and value your comments.
