Local Act Law and Legal Definition

A local act in North Carolina means “an enactment by the North Carolina General Assembly which, in fact, if not in form, is confined within territorial limits other than that of the whole state, or applies to any political subdivision or subdivisions of the state less than the whole . . . as distinguished from a law which operates generally throughout the whole state."
