Ross on the budget, parting advice (Audio)

Rep. Deborah Ross leaves the NC House this weekend to become the general counsel with the Triangle Transit Authority.

The six-term lawmaker joins us on News & Views with Chris Fitzsimon Sunday to discuss the state budget, school vouchers, and offer a bit of advice to the current legislative leadership:

“The more that a legislator focuses on making the institution better, the better the state is. I just caution the current majority that the more they think about themselves, the less they are thinking about North Carolina,” said Rep. Ross.

Former House member Grier Martin will succeed Ross.
