State Republicans wrote a list of the eight things they'll do in the first 100 days of the legislative session if they win majorities in the state House and Senate this election.
Rep. Paul Stam, an Apex Republican and the House minority leader, thinks the House can pass a proposed constitutional amendment that would limit the government's use of eminent domain within a week, if not a day.
The bill has passed the House twice, only to get bottled up in the Senate. The N.C. League of Municipalities has opposed the bill. Stam has championed the idea for years.
"The House has already seen it five times," he said. "I believe we could pass that if not the first day, the first week."
Legislative committees aren't appointed that quickly, but Stam said it's worth considering making a special committee of all House members so they can vote right away.
