Republicans push ambitious agenda during 2013 session
The Republican party controlled the entire lawmaking process this year for the first time in more than a century.

The GOP's supermajority, backed by Gov. Pat McCrory, dramatically reshaped the North Carolina landscape.

This legislature moved to a flat tax and away from a graduated income tax first enacted in 1921; cut unemployment benefits to 1951 levels; turned down federal health insurance for the poor; and made voting more difficult.
