NC Sen. Hagan seeks enrollment, penalty delays

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan wants the Obama administration to delay by two months the period in which individuals can sign up for health insurance through the new government website and when financial penalties begin for those remaining uninsured.

Hagan announced her appeal Thursday while calling problems with the federal exchange “absolutely unacceptable.” She said extra enrollment and penalty delays are needed to make up for lost time while the site has not been functioning.

The open enrollment began Oct. 1 and lasts until March 31. The White House says consumers who sign up through March should not face the financial penalty that was scheduled to start in mid-February.

Hagan wants to extend enrollment through May 31 and delay the penalty until after that date, too.

Officers fired in SHP DWI case win reinstatement

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Two of the three North Carolina law officers fired in 2010 for not charging an off-duty state trooper suspected of drunken driving have won appeals to get their jobs back. The trooper involved has won reinstatement.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Thursday that the court cases against the officers crumbled because the state was unable to prove Highway Patrol Capt. James Williams Jr. was intoxicated.

The Butner Public Safety officer who pulled over Williams’ swerving Mustang did not administer any breathalyzer or sobriety tests to the trooper. Instead, Williams was taken to a nearby hotel.

Williams rejoined the patrol last month with $37,500 in back pay. Two former Butner officers also won their appeals.

Former Butner Lt. Daniel Parrott lost his case after lying to investigators.
