Local News Roundup: CATS goes off the rails, political maps back at NC Supreme Court, 'Banktown' reacts to SVB collapse
On the Local News Roundup, the Charlotte Area Transit System goes off the rails. At least one Lynx train did in a derailment last year that officials are just now hearing about. They also discovered that every train car in the fleet needs repairs and until that happens, trains will be slowing down.
North Carolina’s voter maps are back in front of a now-Republican-controlled State Supreme Court. They’re rehearing a case at the request of the legislature.
Meanwhile, the legislature calls Gov. Roy Cooper’s budget “unrealistic.”
And we look at possible reverberations here from the collapse of a Silicon Valley bank.
Our roundtable of reporters fills us in on those stories and more.
