More non-transparency from General Assembly.

The House and Senate are reconvening Sunday night at 8:00. That’s right, the latest special session begins the Sunday night after Thanksgiving.

What’s on the agenda? Good question. Here’s what the spokesperson for House Speaker Thom Tillis has to say about that in a story in the Wilmington Star-News about the gas tax.

We have not determined an agenda yet as far as what will be considered, and I don’t know when that will happen.

No reason to tell the people you represent what you might be talking about when you are supposed to be representing them. Or even when you might decide. What business of it is the people’s anyway?

    Chris, Chris, your hate is showing for the opposite party. You are at a loss for all objectivity at this point. You can never find the truth. Lord, at this time of Thanksgiving, give Chris a clean and open heart to love Republicans. He hates them so badly. He cannot see the forest for the trees.

    Frances, I can see both the forest and the trees thank you. Why does it mean I hate Republicans because I think it is a good idea in a democracy for the public and all legislators to have some notice of what they will be debating when they return to Raleigh?

    Chris,

    The forest will be the arrow in your heel. We have a Governor who will not lead except in her political interest. She raises money from groups outside NC and from wealthy groups but that is okay. In the Wake county board of education race, thousands of dollars poured from outside and wealthy individuals for Hill but that was okay.But the hate was directed at Art Pope. Then, you raise the issue about the agenda. You have selective issues that only fit in your dictionary. What you ignore is just as harmful or more than what issues you select to raise.
