2015 legislative session
At the beginning of the 2015 legislative session, Bishop served on the following committees:
|North Carolina Committee Assignments, 2015|
|• Banking, Vice-Chairman|
|• Judiciary IV|
|• Pensions and Retirement|
|• Public Utilities|
|• Regulatory Reform|
Bishop's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "As my first legislative priority, I will support additional measures to improve the business climate and help North Carolina’s economy grow. In general, I favor broad-based tax and regulatory reforms and tax incentives that do not involve government picking winners and losers, one transaction at a time. I will be vigilant about regulatory overreach, but also work to prevent regulators from becoming captive to either industry or activists."
- Excerpt: "Under our State Constitution, the responsibility to provide 'for a general and uniform system of free public schools' is divided between state and local government. This is an important sharing, as it allows for meaningful local control over public education. The main responsibility to provide uniformly adequate teacher pay, however, belongs to the General Assembly."
- Excerpt: "Ultimately, the mechanism to both improve healthcare and control its cost is patient-centered market competition. The General Assembly should seek every opportunity to introduce it. For this reason, I support repeal of NC’s CON (Certificate of Need) law. We also should reexamine the consolidation of ever more healthcare in a few, massive nonprofits and governmental entities."
- Excerpt: "The judicial branch receives slightly more than 2% of the state general fund budget. Although very lean, this is comparable to other states. With such limited resources, our court system must innovate and leverage resources with technology. Implementing electronic civil trial court record filing would yield efficiencies for the courts and benefit civil litigants. Pilot e-filing programs have been attempted, but stalled. I propose to explore essentially copying for our state trial courts the civil filing system in effect throughout the federal trial courts."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
