Requires the Legislative Research Commission (LRC) to study where the state should enact legislation requiring that physicians' offices be capable of providing emergency electrical service for use when there is a failure of the normal electrical service. Defines physician offices to mean any premises where a person licensed to practice medicine under GS Chapter 90, or where a professional association or corporation organized under GS Chapter 55B, engages in the practice of medicine. Sets out five issues the LRC must consider, including consulting with the North Carolina Medical Board to determine its support or objection to such a requirement and the reasons why. Requires the LRC report to the 2020 Regular Session of the 2019 General Assembly upon its convening.
