One of the few things upon which I agree with Sleasely and the veto may get overridden

A showdown that could make history is set for Monday, when the governor and legislature will face off over paying taxpayer money to keep factory jobs.

Gov. Mike Easley on Thursday sent notice for the General Assembly to convene next week. At that session members will consider overriding his veto of a bill that would give Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. as much as $40 million to stay in Fayetteville.

If lawmakers negate his action -- and that appears likely -- it would be the first time an North Carolina legislature has overridden a governor's veto.


Here is the whole story.

Curious
how did you feel about the Lenovo deal?
Did you complain then?

I am not as familiar with the Lenovo deal, but I did about the Dell deal. And the local Selma proposal. And FedEx. And about any others I have heard about.
