New NC House Speaker Thom Tillis has been a little harder to interview than his Senate counterpart in the run-up to the new session of the General Assembly. That is, until he met with reporters on Opening Day for a Q&A session that covered everything from new House rules and Dem support to term limits and the size of his gavel.
