Things can move fast in North Carolina politics. Yesterday the primary, next Tuesday the start of the 2008 legislative session. Indeed, it appears the Guv may release his proposed budget as early as next Monday. Meanwhile, the latest numbers from the legislature's Fiscal Research Division seem to indicate that the budget will be very tight.

To get the inside scoop on all of this, be sure to attend a special N.C. Policy Watch/Common Sense Foundation luncheon next Monday, May 12. The cost is only $10 and we'll feed you and treat you to the insights of two of the General Assembly's most knowledgeable and influential leaders — Senator Tony Rand and Representative Rick Glazier.

The event is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. in downtown Raleigh at the Marbles (formerly Exploris) Museum. Click here to learn more and/or sign up. You can also call Annette Plummer at 919-861-2067.
