North Carolina Representatives and Senators gathered in the House chambers last Wednesday evening to receive Governor Pat McCrory’s biennial State of the State Address. Governor McCrory outlined his 2015 agenda, which includes reforms in education, funding of transportation projects, and economic development proposals.
