Domecast, our weekly podcast on government and politics in North Carolina, is ready for the weekend of Sept. 12-13.
It’s been another week of “Budget Watch,” but fluid details are seeping from the negotiations, and a final deal appears to be in striking distance. Our reporters discuss the latest as of Friday morning.
We also get a special update from investigative reporter Joseph Neff of The News & Observer on the leadership of the State Employees Association of North Carolina, which has seen stormy seas this year.
As always, we round it out with our popular Headliners of the Week segment, which among other things answers the question of why watermelons might be important to the state’s spending plan. Listen in with reporters Colin Campbell, Lynn Bonner and Taylor Knopf of the News & Observer and Benjamin Brown of the Insider. Hosted by Patrick Gannon of the Insider.
