This week in state politics, Republican lawmakers advanced three bills that would strip the Democratic Governor of judicial appointment powers.

There was also a renewed effort to raise the criminal prosecution age and more praise for a bill that would change guidelines for the prescribing of opiates.

Rick Glazier, of the NC Justice Center, and Mitch Kokai, of the John Locke Foundation, join WUNC's Jeff Tiberii to discuss the week's news.
