Domecast, The News & Observer’s weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of May 13-14.

In the early hours of Friday morning, the state Senate voted along party lines to approve Senate Republican budget writers’ spending proposal for the coming fiscal year. The budget will now go to the House, where Republican leaders plan to unveil a separate proposal in the coming weeks.

Our reporter panel talks about what the Senate budget means for taxes, the courts, the state workforce and retirees, and even driver’s ed students. Jordan Schrader of The News & Observer hosts, with Colin Campbell of the N&O.
