Tonight the North Carolina House of Representatives will vote again on Senate Bill 10. The bill has made partisan waves and put House Republicans at odds with Senate Republicans. The bill eliminates several boards and commissions, and significantly cuts into term limits for current members. Board continuity is a major concern of both opponents and supporters.
A bill to compensate victims of North Carolina’s Eugenics Program – or forced sterilization -- passed the state House last year but failed to come up for a vote in the Senate. The effort made national news because North Carolina was the first state to consider restitution. In this new legislative session in Raleigh, Representative Susi Hamilton says she’s committed to helping House Speaker Thom Tillis address the damage.
