North Carolina Legislative Session
Wednesday, August 20, 2014
After a marathon session marked by gridlock and bickering, the North Carolina General Assembly finally passed a budget as well as some other items on the legislative agenda. Was the bitter session and budget battle due to a complex process during a mixed economic time or political grandstanding heading into midterm elections?
Guest host and blogger for WFAE's Party Line Dr. Michael Bitzer will be joined by a panel of political experts to tackle those questions and more. We'll examine the recent legislative session and parse out what got accomplished, what was left on the table and what we can expect from lawmakers in Raleigh moving forward.
