Today@NCCapitol (June 13): Math standards, reg reform, eugenics bills on calendars

Posted June 13, 2016

This is the sign in front of the North Carolina legislative building.

— Good morning and welcome to Today@NCCapitol for Monday June 13. Here's what's going on at the state legislature:

FROM THE WEEKEND: Nascent efforts to roll back parts of House Bill 2 have caused a lot of chatter in political circles, but there is little evidence that it has gained enough political momentum to get anywhere near an open debate, much less a vote in the legislature.

HOUSE FLOOR (7 p.m.): Lawmakers are scheduled to take up a bill that would allow Wake County and three other counties to compensate the victims of local eugenics programs and a measure that would allow limited cultivation of industrial hemp.

SENATE FLOOR (7 p.m.): Senators are scheduled to take up a bill dealing with high school math curriculum, a measure making it a crime to squat in a foreclosed property and the chamber's regulatory reform bill, which bounced between several committees last week.
