Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for Labor Day weekend.
Third-term Republican state Rep. Chris Millis announced Friday he would resign effective Sept. 15. The move comes three days after Republican state Sen. Bill Cook announced in the wake of proposed redistricting that he would not run for a fourth term in the Senate.
Our reporter panel talks about those departures as well as the legislature’s move to provide state money for cleanup of polluted drinking water in the Wilmington area, and tie the money to repeal of the coastal ban on plastic bags. And we discuss one lawmaker’s enthusiasm for the electric chair.
The panel picks a Headliner of the Week. Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts, with Lynn Bonner and Will Doran of the N&O and Lauren Horsch of the N.C. Insider.
