There's been some discussion lately about whether North Carolina should have a full-time legislature. Back in 2000, the Center published an article on this topic in our journal, North Carolina Insight. Fifteen years later, are we still asking the same questions? What has changed since then? Read the 2000 article on our journal site - Does NC Have a Citizen Legislature? and let us know what you think.
Today, the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research releases its biennial report Rankings of Effectiveness, Attendance, and Roll Call Voting Participation for the North Carolina General Assembly.
Citizen's Guide to the North Carolina Legislature as a mobile app!
It includes the recent rankings of effectiveness, attendance, and roll call voting participation, in addition to bios of each member of the General Assembly, votes on selected bills and much, much more!
Thanks to a generous sponsorship by EMC2, the app is available for free download on iOS and Android devices.
