As 2010 begins, North Carolina state government faces several unresolved political scandals. Rick Henderson offers an update on the controversies in the next edition of Carolina Journal Radio.

Lawmakers could decide this year to take a shot at reforming North Carolina?s tax code. You?ll hear a Washington-based policy analyst named Michael Mazerov make the case for expanding the state sales tax to cover more services. Roy Cordato will respond with an argument against a tax-reform scheme designed only to raise more revenue.

You?ll also hear Roy and Americans for Prosperity state director Dallas Woodhouse comment about the recent climate summit in Copenhagen, and historian Joshua Howard will join us to explain the significance of the American Revolution?s Battle of Guilford Courthouse.

Plus Donna Martinez and I will tackle some of the best recent entries from this forum in another edition of Locker Room Talk.
