A federal appellate court declares phone data collection by the NSA under the Patriot Act illegal.

At the same time, North Carolina Senator and Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr calls for extension of the Patriot Act which is set to expire at the end of the month. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with political junkie Ken Rudin about the latest on the NSA and other political news around the state.

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.
Laura Lee was the managing editor of The State of Things until mid February 2017. Born and raised in Monroe, North Carolina, Laura returned to the Old North state in 2013 after several years in Washington, DC. She received her B.A. in political science and international studies from UNC-Chapel Hill in 2002 and her J.D. from UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law in 2007.
