NCRLA statement on SB 155The North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association thanks Sen. Rick Gunn and the five Republican and Democratic co-sponsors of SB 155. This “brunch bill” will allow our North Carolina restaurants and hotels to meet their guest’s needs. With 55 million visitors to our state every year, this bill will be good for tourism and hospitality. The local “opt in” provision is a new approach. We believe a number of counties will want this new option for their citizens and guests. -- NCRLA President & CEO Lynn Minges.
