Student political, religious groups aided in NC bill

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Political and religious groups on North Carolina’s public higher education campuses would be in charge of their internal affairs in legislation making its way through the General Assembly.

The Senate bill recommended Tuesday by a House committee comes as Christian groups in other states are no longer recognized college organizations because their doctrines clash with university policy. The proposal says an organization can decide that only people professing its faith or mission and who act in that manner can be leaders.

Sen. Dan Soucek says some students fear compromising beliefs to get group recognition. Some lawmakers opposed to the bill say students should have to abide by campus regulations.

The bill next goes to the full House, which passed a similar bill last year.

NC appeals court sides with state retirees

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — A North Carolina appeals court says former state Chief Justice I. Beverly Lake and other retired state employees can continue their legal fight over health insurance coverage.

A three-judge panel of the state Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that a lower court was right to reject a bid by state officials to scrap the lawsuit.

Lake and two dozen other retired state employees sued in 2012. They say the State Health Plan for Teachers and State Employees stopped offering a 90/10 health plan in 2009 and an 80/20 health plan in 2011.

The appeals panel ruled the retirees have a case that should be decided on whether ending the health insurance options affecting nearly 190,000 people violated a valid contract between them and the state.
