Balanced Debate For The Old North State.
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow will keep NC SPIN from commenting on the top issues in our state. This week's program reports on judges and rulings, starting with UNC asking a judge what to do about Silent Sam. A new ruling declares states cannot require work for Medicaid benefits. How does that apply to our state? And a panel of Court of Appeals judges has stymied North Carolina's voter ID law. Is it dead for all elections? Joining our panel this week is political analyst Erica Palmer Smith, John Locke VP Becki Gray, NC Policy Watch's director Rob Schofield and Rick Henderson, editor in chief of Carolina Journal. Be sure to watch NC SPIN Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and again Sunday at 12:30 p.m. You can also steam he program at your leisure from our website www.ncspin.com Thank you for watching NC SPIN.
