The N.C. General Assembly has concluded its biennial “crossover” chaos, in which legislators in both the House and Senate attempt to save legislation that would otherwise die for the next two years. John Locke Foundation Vice President for Outreach Becki Gray will recap key highlights from “crossover week” during an appearance this afternoon with Bill LuMaye on Talk Radio WPTF. Gray’s conversation with LuMaye will follow a similar discussion with Carl Lamm on WTSB, one of her two regular weekly appearances on that Johnston County radio station. Gray recently discussed freedom in North Carolina during a keynote address at the N.C. Republican Party’s 4th District convention.
Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson and JLF Director of Outreach Donna Martinez highlight the week’s top political developments during this weekend’s edition of Curtis Media Group’s syndicated “People In Politics” program. Director of Communications Mitch Kokai analyzed new presidential polling data for Time Warner Cable News’ statewide “Capital Tonight” program. The Sanford Herald promoted Kokai’s speech this week to the Lee County Republican Men’s Club on the ongoing legislative debate surrounding targeted tax incentives. WSOC Television interviewed “Meck Deck” blogger Michael Lowrey, JLF economics and regulatory policy analyst, about concerns involving Charlotte city government retirees collecting salaries and pension benefits at the same time.
