There will be no sessions of the NC Senate or the NC House of the North Carolina General Assembly today. There is a committee meeting scheduled for today.
If you cannot listen to this meetings live, check back later to see if I have. I currently plan to listen to it. If I do, I'll post the audio (and a download link) for the meeting at the top of this page. You can also follow what is happening in the NC General Assembly by keeping an eye on the hashtag #ncga on Twitter.
If I haven't been able to listen, please check with Voter Radio. You should already be subscribing to their podcasts anyway. I do. ???
