We catch up with long-time NC political reporter Barry Smith of the Carolina Journal to hear his expectations for the 2017 session of the NC General Assembly.

Roy Cooper previously served in the NC General Assembly prior to his decade-plus run as NC Attorney General.  Barry Smith recalls Mr. Cooper’s work in “crossing the aisle” to work with the GOP.

Smith says the switch of power in the North Carolina Governor’s mansion may not result in a sense of change given Pat McCrory’s, sometimes, rocky relationship with NC legislative leaders.
