politics politics podcast logo

Republican legislative leaders have come to a budget deal. The nearly $28 billion proposal is expected to receive bipartisan backing by the end of the week. However, it does not include Medicaid expansion, likely leaving the governor less than thrilled. Meanwhile, the General Assembly short session is nearing a conclusion. WRAL Statehouse reporter Travis Fain stops by to size up the session, and talk about some pieces of legislation that are going nowhere.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
