What Matters-Speaker Tim Moore and Tim Boyum-Friday, February 24, 2017-36 Minutes

Joining Mark today is Rep. Tim Moore, speaker of the North Carolina House of Representatives, to talk about the teacher pay raise proposal put forth by Gov. Roy Cooper; the economic progress the state has made under conservative policies; and the various HB 2 repeal bills that have been filed. Of particular interest is HB 186, filed by Rep. Chuck McGrady (R-Henderson), that is opposed by both the NC Values Coalition as well as the militant leftist Equality NC but has not Republican and Democrat cosponsors. Following Moore is Tim Boyum, anchor of Capital Tonight on the Time Warner Cable News Channel, on for his weekly breakdown of the news in the legislature. We talk with Boyum about the various HB 2 repeal bills, the pace of the General Assembly which after nearly a month has only sent one bill to Gov. Cooper, and the “circus-like” situation of the NC Senate trying to hold a confirmation hearing for Sec. Larry Hall which has resulted in a subpoena being issued for his appearance next week after his third refusal to appear before the Senate committee tasked with holding the confirmation hearings.
