CPP: Apodaca touts NC legislature’s busy year in talk to business leaders

Here’s an excerpt from the Carolina Public Press article:

Hendersonville Republican Tom Apodaca, chairman of the state Senate’s powerful Rules and Operations Committee, touted the General Assembly’s flood of new legislation in a meeting last week with the Asheville-based Council of Independent Business Owners. …

During the 30-minute talk and Q&A, Apodaca praised many of the state GOP’s major recent initiatives, including tax cuts, a balanced state budget, regulatory reductions and changes to education policies and voting laws. …

“Those are the things we don’t hear about, the little things we do that mean so much to the state as a whole,” he said. “I think our future is very, very bright. I’m not one of these naysayers.”
