What Matters-Tonya Baker Nelson and Tim Boyum-Friday, February 10, 2017-48 Minutes

First up on today’s show is Tonya Baker Nelson, with Hand of Hope Pregnancy Center, to give an update on her organization’s fighting the City of Raleigh over the zoning of a building they purchased which is next door to an abortion clinic. The overreach has kept them from using a building based on what seems to be arbitrary use of zoning ordinances. And, the meeting they have Monday before the Raleigh Board of Adjustment. Following up Tonya is Tim Boyum, anchor of Capital Tonight on the Time Warner Cable News Channel, for his weekly news wrap up to include include an update on Gov. Roy Cooper’s attending sporting events such as the Carolina Hurricanes and the Duke vs UNC basketball game and how that might ingratiate him as a “man of the people.” Also, Tim talks with us about the flurry of bills filed in the last week including Rep. Dollar’s HB 7 which requires the state to put money into the “Rainy Day Fund,” Also, having over a billion dollars in surplus can incite a lot of pressure to spend the money or give a rebate to taxpayers – how will the General Assembly respond to that pressure?
