Citizen-Times: Water-sewer bill passes House, moves to Senate

A controversial bill that strips Asheville of the local water system passed its third vote in the North Carolina Statehouse. According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, the bill moves to the Senate, “where an opponent said it will be difficult to stop.”

A bill to transfer the city water system to the Metropolitan Sewerage District received final approval from the state House on a 72-39 vote Monday evening.

The measure sponsored by Rep. Tim Moffitt, R-Buncombe, now goes to the Senate, where an opponent said it will be difficult to stop.
