    ong> - (AP) A commission put in charge of re-drawing the state line between North Carolina and South Carolina is ready to discuss legislation to minimize the impact of their work.

    The Joint Boundary Commission has been working for nearly two decades to clarify the exact position of the state line, using instructions about how to draw the border of the Carolinas handed down from the king of England in the 1730s.

    The line as currently drawn is off in some places by several hundred feet, especially in areas between the mountains and Charlotte because surveyors decades ago marked trees and used less modern technology. About 90 properties will shift states.

    A public hearing Friday morning in Monroe will discuss legislative proposals in both states to make things easier for those property owners.
