As the N.C. General Assembly works to wrap-up its seven-week session, Senator Eric Mansfield [1] says there were several missed opportunities.

Mansfield, who appeared last weekend on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon, says among this session’s biggest disappointments was the failure of his colleagues in the Senate to even consider compensation for victims of the state’s now defunct forced-sterilization program:

“It seemed not indicative of what I thought most of our Senators were, which even if they were nothing else, I thought the majority of them were empathetic and compassionate,” said Senator Mansfield.

The legislature is expected to conclude its summer session on Tuesday.
