THE FINAL PUSH

Paul Fogleman,

The House has approved new judicial districts and court redistricting this week, but there is a question about the Senate’s interest. Getting a lot of attention is a provision in the Farm Bill that would prohibit liquid made from soy, almonds, coconut etc being labeled and sold as milk in North Carolina. Only dairy products could carry the milk designation. House leaders have declined to allow consideration of a bill that would permit school teachers to be armed with firearms. Local bills involving sales and occupancy taxes and annexations are being pushed with an eye toward adjournment (or recess) by June 21. But always politics and surprises determine when lawmakers finally pack up and go home.
