  • This week in state politics, legislators debate a spending plan that sets aside billions, provides raises, and seeks to weather an inflation storm. Meanwhile at the U.S. Supreme Court, four justices agreed to hear a challenge related to the independence – and unchecked power – of state legislatures. In our Friday review, Donna King of the conservative Carolina Journal and Rob Schofield from the progressive NC Policy Watch review.

WRAL Statehouse reporter Travis Fain stops by to size up the session, and talk about some pieces of legislation that are going nowhere.

A sign that says "Reproductive Health Clinic" stands next to the line, and there is a sign attached to the building that the line has formed next to with an arrow that says "Reproductive Health Clinic." The word "Overturned" appears in the lower righthand corner.
