RALEIGH (AP) -- The House agreed unanimously today to abolish a state surplus property panel that has been unable to generate a single sale since it was formed nearly three years ago.
The North Carolina Commission on State Property is charged with evaluating unused or forgotten state land or buildings and determining whether it should be sold, generating revenues for both state and local governments.
But the commission doesn't actually sell the property, and its work has been hampered by politics, resistance from other agencies and ethics questions.
The panel has spent more than $220,000 since it began.
