The North Carolina Senior Tar Heel Legislature was created by the North Carolina General Assembly with the passage of Senate Bill 479 in July of 1993. The purpose of the Senior Tar Heel Legislator is to:
• Provide information to senior citizens on the legislative process and matters being considered by the North Carolina General Assembly.
• Promote citizen involvement and advocacy concerning aging issues before the North Carolina General Assembly.
• Assess the legislative needs of older citizens by convening a forum modeled after the North Carolina General Assembly.
The purpose of the Senior Tar Heel Legislature is to advise and inform the North Carolina General Assembly regarding issues impacting the lives of persons aged 60 and over in North Carolina. Senior Tar Heels attend regional meetings and state meetings. It is during these meetings where members become knowledgeable about the needs of older adults in their respective counties, and advocate with local and state public officials on behalf of older adults.
