Hospital Prices/State Employee Grievance Bill Signed into Law

Governor McCrory Wednesday signed a measure requiring hospitals to make public their prices on nearly 150 common services and procedures.  Hospitals also would be unable in some situations to place a lien on someone's house in order to collect unpaid bills.  The law also seeks to reduce the grievance process for state employees, and exempts more positions from the state personnel act and its job-protecting rules.
