North Carolina legislators are discussing contrasting versions of a state budget plan for 2014-15, and Time Warner Cable News’ statewide “Capital Tonight” program called on John Locke Foundation Director of Fiscal Policy Studies Sarah Curry this week to discuss budget negotiations. Curry also discussed the latest state budget developments, including her recommendation of a “reverse logrolling” approach to budget negotiations, on the WRHT Radio morning program.

“Capital Tonight” interviewed Vice President for Outreach Becki Gray about different House and Senate proposals for addressing state Medicaid reform. Gray continues twice-weekly politics and public policy updates for WTSB Radio.

During back-to-back appearances on News Radio WPTF’s morning program, Director of Communications Mitch Kokai discussed a pair of education-related topics: the state budget concerns of superintendents from North Carolina’s largest school districts and a rally calling for increased funding for the state’s new opportunity scholarship program. Kokai analyzed some of the week’s top state government news for Curtis Wright on WMYT Radio.

Carolina Journal Managing Editor Rick Henderson spotlights the week’s top electoral news for Curtis Media Group’s syndicated “People In Politics” radio program.
