General Assembly of N.C. Appoints Smith Anderson Attorney Bill Nelson to Rules Review Commission


North Carolina Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger has appointed Smith Anderson attorney Bill Nelson to the North Carolina Rules Review Commission (RRC). His two-year term began July 1, 2023.

The RRC is an executive agency created by the North Carolina General Assembly in 1986. It is charged with reviewing and approving rules adopted by state agencies by determining that the rules that each state agency enforces are within the authority delegated by the General Assembly, are clear and unambiguous, necessary and adopted in compliance with the Administrative Procedure Act.

The RRC consists of ten commissioners appointed by the General Assembly, five on the recommendation of the President Pro Tempore and five on the recommendation of the Speaker of the House.

Bill focuses his practices on issues such as transactional tax planning, tax controversies and litigation dealing with state and federal tax authorities as administrative agencies and representing taxpayers before the North Carolina General Assembly. He has written and spoken on a variety of federal and state tax topics and has been active in a number of state tax and business law legislative reform efforts.
