Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of July 15-16.
Despite only being a part-time legislature, lawmakers are still sticking around the General Assembly with special sessions coming up in August and September. Is it time to start calling it a full-time legislature? The panel also discussed a community newspaper’s request for Gov. Roy Cooper to veto a bill that could put the paper out of business; Rev. William J. Barber II challenging a ban that keeps him from the Legislative Building; and what is happening between health care protesters and U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis.
We also pick a Headliner of the Week. Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts, with Matthew Adams and Will Doran of the N&O, and Colin Campbell and Lauren Horsch of the N.C. Insider.
