In recent days, Daren Bakst and Joe Coletti have reached a variety of audiences on many different issues. Daren appeared at a House Judiciary I Committee meeting on the Electioneering Communications bill (527 bill) arguing, in part, that prohibiting someone from creating a second 527 with the intent of evading expenditure limits is impossible to enforce. He also attended a transportation and land use technical working group meeting that is part of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources’s (DENR) Climate Action Plan Advisory Group. Joe Coletti spoke at the State Employee’s Association of NC Distr. 17 meeting, explaining the need for merit pay, portable benefits (defined-contribution pension and health care, such as IRAs and HSAs), and accountability in state employment. Joe also spoke with Catherine Welch from Wilmington’s public radio station, WHQR, about the film incentive changes bill. And tomorrow he will be taping a segment for News14’s Political Connections on teacher pay.
