Legislative News


H446 signed into law by Gov. McCrory on August 5 2015.  This bill changes the minimum age to be a bondsman from 18 to 21, extends the time from 72 hours to 15 days to return collateral and gives bondsmen access to VCAP.  Click on this LINK to get instructions from AOC for VCAP/ACIS access.


General Assembly News Flash…NCBAA Legislation sent to Governor for signature.

The North Carolina Bail Agents Association has been hard at work for you!!

The North Carolina Bail Agents Association would like to announce legislation that has passed both the House and Senate and is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature.  The Board of Directors and members of the legislative committee, along with our hard working lobbyists, Mike Mann and Mark Black, have spent countless hours working towards the betterment of the bail industry as a whole.  The bill that benefits bail this session is:

Senate Bill 734 

Simply stated, it clarifies any question as to the design and dimension of our recently approved bail bond shield and also allows any licensed NC bondsman to assist any other licensed NC bondsman in the apprehension and surrender of a defendant.  You can see the bill language at the below link:


NCBAA isn’t done working for you yet!  There are currently more proposed law changes being studied for submission.

There is another group in North Carolina that is claiming responsibility for your Association’s hard work and lobbying efforts.  This group has not vocalized your needs to the General Assembly, because they are unable to.  They do not employ registered lobbyists on the behalf of bail agents in this state.  NCBAA is the only non profit association, with a volunteer Board, that employs registered lobbyists, for your future and your industry.

The facts are that Mike Mann and Mark Black are the ones to be credited with seeing that our interests are represented in the General Assembly. NCBAA has worked closely with the Sheriff’s Association, the Clerk’s Association, the District Attorney’s Conference, AOC, the School Board Association and many others to develop legislation for the benefit of all.

NCBAA has taken the comments and suggestions of its membership and worked hand in hand with our lobbyists to ensure that your voice is heard at the General Assembly.

NCBAA will continue to work towards protecting and promoting private surety bail in this state as it has since 1992.  We ask for your continued support of your Association and Bail PAC, so that we may continue to work on your behalf.

Randy Cauthen, NCBAA President
