Officials to discuss legislation over NC-SC border

MONROE, N.C. (AP) - Officials are trying to figure out how to minimize the impact of their work now that they have finished a modern survey of the state line between South Carolina and North Carolina.

The Joint Boundary Commission met Friday in Monroe to discuss legislation in both states that they hope to finish by the fall.

The bills deal with people who find themselves in another state after the line is re-drawn. They would assure those people could keep their utilities, stay in the same schools and not have to pay back taxes to the Carolina where they suddenly became residents.

Officials estimate the revised line moves about 50 residents and 90 properties between states.

The state line moves several hundred feet in some cases because of more modern surveying techniques.
