WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With Robert Reives

Ways To Subscribe
WUNCPolitics Podcast

There was plenty of budget discussion at the North Carolina General Assembly this week. But for now, still no agreement on a state spending plan. Many Democrats, led by the Governor, are pushing for the expansion of Medicaid as part of any compromise. Some Republicans, led by legislative leaders, continue to balk at that request, and say the minority party is holding the budget hostage.

Robert Reives (D-Chatham) is the Deputy Democratic Leader in the NC House. On this edition of the podcast he talks budget impasse, an upcoming state gerrymandering trial, as well as the flurry of action in NBA Free Agency.

Jeff Tiberii is the co-host of WUNC's "Due South." Jeff joined WUNC in 2011. During his 20 years in public radio, he was Morning Edition Host at WFDD and WUNC’s Greensboro Bureau Chief and later, the Capitol Bureau Chief. Jeff has covered state and federal politics, produced the radio documentary “Right Turn,” launched a podcast, and was named North Carolina Radio Reporter of the Year four times.
