Looking At The State's Regional Legislation As The Session Comes To A Close

The North Carolina State Seal.
NC Department Of Transportation

At the start of this legislative session, the General Assembly was jam-packed with bills to alter ultra-local affairs. Bills were on the table to change school ownership, to clean up Jordan Lake and to take away Charlotte's ownership of their airport, to name a few.

Dave DeWitt is WUNC's Raleigh Bureau Chief. He joins Host Frank Stasio to talk about the recent developments in the North Carolina General Assembly as the legislative session comes to a close.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
