The General Assembly of North Carolina was busy during the 1951 session. It took care of the necessary items of business such as the Revenue an Appropriations Act, new state policies in such fields as gasoline tax, and it passed a large number of bills clarifying or modifying existing state policy. The General Assembly also found time to set the salaries of sheriffs, prohibit the killing of birds in certain counties, amend election laws, and fix the salary of a courthouse janitor.
Firemen and others seeking an answer to the rural fire protection problem were given a new tool by the 1951 General Assembly. Rural fire protection districts may now be created in any county of North Carolina.
