WFAE Talks: Voucher Ruling, Garbage, I-77 Tolls And NCDOT Caginess
News Director Greg Collard, education reporter Lisa Miller and Money & Influence reporter Tom Bullock discuss a Wake County judge's ruling against North Carolina's publicly-funded private school voucher program. They also discuss the idea of paying for garbage collection with a per-bag system, and the continuing debate over I-77 toll lanes. In a related matter, Greg reads his frustrating email exchange with a North Carolina Department of Transportation spokeswoman. Plus, Lisa and Tom give previews of upcoming series on the cost of higher education and North Carolina's investment strategy for its pension system.
