After weeks of lobbing grenades – on video poker, eye exams and the teapot museum – at their fellow Democrats in the House the state Senate just lobbed one at Governor Easley.
For years, going back to the days of Governor Hunt, the governor has been chairman of the N.C. Progress Board which reports to the public on the state’s progress on education, the economy and the environment. But that may be about to change (Charlotte Observer, 06-11-06).
Democrats in the Senate have just passed legislation to strip the governor of his chairmanship and a quarter of his appointments to the board. Now whoever heard of a Democratic state Senate removing a Democratic governor as chairman of a state board? Watching the state Senate just gets more and more interesting.
