nc legislative battles impact the obx
With the NC Legislature’s House and Senate leaders deadlocked in a budget debate, the views on state legislation of the Outer Banks’ elected representatives have become critical. The interviews Russ Lay and Sam Walker of the Outer Banks Voice conducted with Representative Tine and Senator Cook have information about pending legislation everyone who loves the Outer Banks should have.
“In an effort to bring our readers closer to what is happening in the General Assembly and how its decisions might affect them, the Voice’s Sam Walker and Russ Lay headed to Raleigh for extended interviews at the Legislative Building with Rep. Paul Tine, D-Dare and Sen. Bill Cook, R-Beaufort.
Both shared their thoughts on some of the bills that had been working their way through the legislature prior to work during this year’s short session.
That work has come to grinding halt because Republican leaders of the House and Senate have failed to agree on adjusting the $21 billion state budget for the fiscal year that started July 1.”
