Wednesday wrap: Racial Justice Act repeal still in limbo
Posted May 22, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — The parts of the Racial Justice Act not gutted by legislators last year are in the crosshairs of Senate Bill 306, but the bill didn't get a vote in House Judiciary B committee Wednesday. It'll be back on the committee's agenda next week at the state legislature.
Wednesday saw the Senate give its budget proposal a first, party-line pass and the House tweak the deal to sell the Dorothea Dix property.
Meantime, a key House chairman handed back his gavel with a scathing letter blasting fellow Republican House Speaker Thom Tillis.
Capitol Bureau Chief Laura Leslie and Investigative Reporter Mark Binker have the details.
