NC Policy Watch rant in CO clothing... nothing new here. Of course lawmakers discuss proposals and line up support before bringing them into the light. It will be brought into the light and pass or fail on a vote in each body in the Legislature and then the Governor can veto it or not.

This demand to slow down and have endless public hearings would be considered obstruction if the parties in the Majority and Minority were reversed. At least the Governor is not doing this with a memo as the Chief Executive of the US is fond of doing.

Charter's are marginally better than Traditional Government Schools because they do not get any funding until a parent decides to send their child to it. Now that is a change the Legislature should make for Traditional Government Schools as well.
