Raleigh, NC - Yesterday Rep. Jon Hardister (R - Guilford) successfully passed two regulatory reform bills in the NC House. 

HB 688, which passed on a vote of 115-2, reduces continuing education requirements for ground water well contractors. HB 761, which passed on a unanimous vote, allows ground water well drillers the ability to install certain electrical devices. The purpose of these two bills is to ease the regulatory burden on the well contracting industry.

"These bills will make it easier for well contractors to do their job," Hardister said. "It is important that we work to implement policies that will make it easier for private sector businesses to grow. These two bills will help to accomplish that goal."

Hardister also expressed gratitude for the strong bipartisan support that both of these bills received.
