While much has been written about the contentious policies adopted this year under the Republican-led legislature in North Carolina, Lt. Governor Dan Forest points to meaningful bills which passed with little fanfare and bipartisan support. On this program, the Lt. Governor discusses the state of civility in politics and his views on priorities at the General Assembly in 2014. Kathy Almond of the Stanly County Chamber of Commerce and Andy Brack of the Statehouse Report join the dialogue.
