This Week In NC Politics: A Mitigation Fund And Reaction To Another School Shooting

Feb 16, 2018

State legislators have departed for an extended break, but unsurprisingly, the partisan spats are not quieting down.

This week in North Carolina politics saw disputes over the constitutionality and possible ethical issue stemming from a $57.8 million mitigation fund related to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, and Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, join WUNC Capitol Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii to discuss the fund, as well as reflect on two longtime lawmakers who will not seek re-election and the nation's inability to do anything about mass shootings.
