North Carolina Budget And 'End Of Session' Roundup

Credit NC General Assembly

Earlier this month, we discussed some of the issues going on in the state legislature, but just barely scratched the surface in our discussion about taxes, Moral Mondays, and the negative national attention our state government is receiving these days. On this edition of Charlotte Talks, we'll gather political reporters and experts to talk about what's been going on since, in the final days of the legislative session. We'll cover the budget and some of the budget items that are raising eyebrows around the state like cuts in education and the closing of prisons around the state, and we'll talk about tax reform, the election bill, and Medicaid changes. Join us for that discussion, when Charlotte Talks.
