Among the controversial bills that the Governor attempted (probably successfully) to approve under the news media radar this afternoon was the hugely controversial proposal  detailed here  by NC Policy Watch reporter Sharon McCloskey last month to establish a secret and unaccountable “star chamber” system for disciplining wayward state judges.
All in all, this afternoon appears to be shaping up as the icing on the cake  of what is, without a doubt, one of the most disastrous years in public policy in state history.
Have a great weekend.
