John Locke Update

2021 State of North Carolina Legislative Agenda

posted on

Barring any new emergencies, look for the 2021 General Assembly session to consist of three phases: (1) immediate Covid-19 response and recovery, (2) the state budget in later spring with a budget passed and sent to the governor before the end of the fiscal year, and (3) the decennial redistricting of congressional and legislative districts in late summer or early fall.

Our mission at the John Locke Foundation is to help legislators make sound, research-based decisions on all of these issues. As you page through our 2021 legislative agenda, you’ll see that the recommendations we champion are guided by our core values: freedom, free markets, and limited constitutional government.

About John Locke Foundation

We are North Carolina’s Most Trusted and Influential Source of Common Sense. The John Locke Foundation was created in 1990 as an independent, nonprofit think tank that would work “for truth, for freedom, and for the future of North Carolina.” The Foundation is named for John Locke (1632-1704), an English philosopher whose writings inspired Thomas Jefferson and the other Founders.

The John Locke Foundation is a 501(c)(3) research institute and is funded solely from voluntary contributions from individuals, corporations, and charitable foundations.
