Tuesday wrap: Berger's tax reform plan, concealed weapons, pre-K, sex-selective abortion
Posted May 7, 2013
Capitol Bureau Chief Laura Leslie and investigative reporter Mark Binker discuss the hectic scramble at the state legislature this week to push bills through at least one chamber before the "crossover" deadline.
On Tuesday, Senate Leader Phil Berger unveiled details of a forthcoming tax reform bill, though an actual bill or fiscal note remains to be seen.
The House approved bills that would expand the number of places in North Carolina where people can carry concealed weapons, cut the number of children eligible for the state's free pre-kindergarten program and restrict abortions based on sex selection.
