This Week In NC Politics: Breaking Up School Districts, Revenue Forecasts And The Primary Election

Apr 13, 2018

On this week's review of North Carolina politics, a much-criticized Legislative committee tasked with studying the pros and cons of breaking up large school districts adjourned without making any policy recommendations. Also, the most recent revenue projections forecast a state surplus of more than $200 million. When legislators reconvene next month, what are the top two things they should do with that money?

And finally,  we're less than a month from the primary election and two incumbents from Mecklenburg County – both African-American Democrats – did not receive support from the Charlotte Black Caucus.

Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, and Mitch Kokai, of the John Locke Foundation, discuss those stories during this conversation.
