The Elusive State Budget

Politics Podcast Facebook Header

The North Carolina General Assembly is months away from finishing the state budget for the next two years, but the state Senate has unveiled its proposal.

In this episode, WUNC reporter Will Michaels gets to ask the questions of host Jeff Tiberii to help us all better understand the Senate's priorities and why there may not be a budget before the end of the year, let alone the fiscal year.

Jeff Tiberii first started posing questions to strangers after dinner at La Cantina Italiana, in Massachusetts, when he was two-years-old. Jeff grew up in Wayland, Ma., an avid fan of the Boston Celtics, and took summer vacations to Acadia National Park (ME) with his family. He graduated from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, and moved to North Carolina in 2006. His experience with NPR member stations WAER (Syracuse), WFDD (Winston-Salem) and now WUNC, dates back 15 years.
Will Michaels is WUNC's General Assignment Reporter and fill-in host for "Morning Edition"
