Thursday Wrap: Hasta la vista

— The General Assembly went back to work Thursday in a effort to finally wrap up their summer session. Senators have sent the House not one, not two, but three adjournment resolutions.

Senators have also tied a fix to how funding for teachers and teaching assistants work sought by school districts to an economic development bill. The TA fix won't pass unless a measure allowing counties to levy new sales taxes and creating a new state job catalyst fund does. 

On Friday, House and Senate leaders are scheduled to vote on a regulatory reform bill.

    Get back in there and fix this population problem! Hold agencies accountable for upholding the laws as written, enforce penalties on enablers, and return NC to North Carolinians!

    You can almost always count on the N.C. Senate to outsmart the N.C. House (and the N.C. Guv). It has ever been thus.
