This Week in NC Politics: An Analysis of Gov. Cooper's First State Of The State Address

Mar 17, 2017

This week in state politics,  an analysis of Gov. Roy Cooper's first State of the State address. Cooper used the phrase "common ground" 13 different times, called again for a repeal of the controversial House Bill 2 and touted the largely-symbolic budget plan as a vehicle to invest in education and  teachers.

Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, join WUNC's Jeff Tiberii to discuss the week's news.
