On the fourth edition of the WUNCPolitics podcast: three distinctly different views on HB2. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, UNC President Margaret Spellings, and high school student Hunter Schafer. They have very different ideas - and have reacted in different ways - to the law passed by the General Assembly in March.

On this episode of the WUNCPolitics podcast, we discuss what Republican leaders in the state are saying about the U.S. Department of Justice's letter to Governor McCrory this week, telling him if HB2 was enforced the feds would consider it a violation of federal discrimination laws - and how the state could lose billions of dollars in federal money. Also, Congressional primary races are a month away, education funding discussions are coming up in the General Assembly, and Treasurer Janet Cowell takes positions on two corporate boards, while she manages the state's pension fund.

On this episode of the WUNCPolitics Podcast we look at the political will and strategizing surrounding HB2. Will voters get a chance to vote on an HB2 referendum this fall? And a conversation about how North Carolina’s “hybrid” General Assembly – made up of part-time lawmakers - compares to other states, and how that drives who serves as legislators and what kinds of issues they are most likely to take up.
