The NC Senate will convene in less than two hours (2:00 pm) Thursday.
Here is the latest scoop on the Charlotte Airport takeover from the Charlotte Observer:
Republican Gov. Pat McCrory said Thursday morning he doesn’t think there will be a compromise before 2 p.m. on who controls Charlotte Douglas Airport, despite his efforts to reach a deal.
McCrory, the former Charlotte mayor, was asked how he would have reacted if the General Assembly had moved to transfer the airport to an authority while he was mayor.
“It wouldn’t have occurred,” said McCrory, who spoke with media after a groundbreaking ceremony for the Lynx Blue Line extension. “In my 14 years (as mayor) we did everything we could to keep politics out of the airport.”
