Following recent victories in Oklahoma, Washington and Illinois, North Carolina is moving towards WC reform as well. On June 1, 2011, the NC House passed H.B. 709, representing a comprehensive WC reform package now headed to the state Senate. Among the significant measures, the bill limits TTD to 500 weeks, which is currently unlimited. The bill can be viewed in its entirety at:  http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/Sessions/2011/Bills/House/PDF/H709v1.pdf
