WUNCPolitics Podcast: A Conversation With House Speaker Tim Moore
On this edition of the podcast, North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore speaks with Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii. Moore (R-Cleveland) is in his 8th term of the House and his 2nd term as speaker. A day earlier in his office, Moore held a news conference to talk about House Bill 2, one year to the day after its passage. The Speaker said the bathroom provision will not be changed under his watch. He also indicated that a proposal to change the bill is being worked on, along with Senate leader Phil Berger, and could be introduced next week. Moore said that bill would include a "conscience protection" provision. The speaker was asked about that, as well as beer, basketball, President Trump and the Oklahoma City bombing, during the conversation.
