Lawmakers Kick Off The Work Week With A Light Load And A Friendly Chat
Lawmakers began their work week with a Moral Monday protest and a light legislative schedule.
The House convened briefly in a skeleton session, while the Senate met later in the evening.
Senators passed a bill that would create a public-private economic development enterprise. It would contract with the Department of Commerce to attract companies and promote trade and tourism. The Senate's version of the bill would also start a program giving grants to film, TV, and video projects in the state. A tax incentive program expires at the end of the year.
And Moral Monday protesters held a long conversation with Senate President Phil Berger last night. They asked Berger for a public dialog about education.
