Governor Pat McCrory has called a special session of the General Assembly for December 13, to deal with the recovery efforts from Hurricane Matthew. Gov. McCrory made the announcement during a meeting of the Hurricane Matthew Recovery Committee in Lenoir County.

"Now that we have received input directly from the communities most impacted by Hurricane Matthew, I am officially requesting that the legislature convene for a special session to address these important needs as quickly as possible,” Gov. McCrory said. “I want to thank the communities for their feedback and the members of the committee for their tireless work to help North Carolina recover. While this is the final regional meeting, our work the help those in need is far from complete.”
 
According to an email news release, Gov. McCrory signed Executive Order No. 117, which waives some size and weight restrictions and registration requirements allowing manufactured housing to arrive for victims of the hurricane. Residents in Bladen, Columbus and Robeson counties are among the victims eligible to receive the housing while repairs are done to their homes damaged by the storm.
