This week, host Donna Martinez focuses on the legislature. After months in session the bills are heading to Governor Pat McCrory's desk. We hear from the Governor on two key pieces of legislation. The first honors the lake state legislator Jim Fulghum of Wake County. You'll hear the governor's comments at the signing ceremony for the teen Skin Cancer Prevention Act. Then you'll hear the governor discuss why he signed that protects the disabled and the elderly from abuse in group and nursing homes in North Carolina. That is followed by a discussion with Carolina Journal's Rick Henderson about the latest efforts by national Democrats to encourage former US Senator Kay Hagan to challenge Republican Senator Richard Burr. And finally,  Martinez talks with Democratic political consultant Thomas Mills about the Democratic Party's view of actions taken so far by the state legislature and the governor.
