Lawmakers get down to business as July 1 approaches

Jun 07, 2024

Action at the legislature heated up this week as lawmakers reached a compromise on a mask bill and offered potential constitutional amendments.

Also, the State Health Plan Board of Trustees held a special meeting to vote on increasing premiums on Medicare Advantage plans after Humana raised its price.

On this week's SEANC View Podcast, Communications Director Jon Owens, Executive Director Ardis Watkins, and Government Relations Director Suzanne Beasley discuss these topics and the ongoing state budget negotiations. We also touch on the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission's "Raccoon Week" social media campaign that garnered national attention.
