RALEIGH — Rep. Chris Malone (R-Wake) was appointed this week to chair the Property Owner Protection and Rights Study Committee.
The Committee will study the establishment of a property owner protection act that would favor the free use of land.
Legislators will meet with industry professionals and various stakeholders as they make recommendations to the General Assembly to streamline efficiency for North Carolina’s property owners.
“A free society is predicated on the unalterable principle that self-determination and the effort to better oneself be respected and maintained,” Malone said. “Without property rights, man loses his liberty and right to that autonomy.”
The study of property owner protection is part of an ongoing effort to cut through bureaucratic red tape for citizens and small business owners. Recommendations will be reported during the 2014 short session and the 2015 long session of the General Assembly as a component of the Legislative Research Commission report.
