NC sterilization agency reports 780 claims filed

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Nearly 800 people thought to be victims of North Carolina’s sterilization program have submitted forms to claim compensation from the state.

The Office for Justice of Sterilization Victims says as of July 17, it has received 780 forms from potential eugenics board victims. They had until June 30 to submit a claim to be considered for compensation.

Of the total, 500 forms have been forwarded to the N.C. Industrial Commission for determination of eligibility. The remaining 280 claim forms are classified as received by the deadline and are either missing information or require additional research.

The $10 million allotted by the state as compensation will be divided among those who file a claim and are approved by the commission. The state will pay victims one year after the deadline.

Longer session tests Tillis, US Senate race

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis had hoped this year’s North Carolina legislative session would be over by now. But the budget is over three weeks late and hopes of a July 4 end date are a distant memory.

The lingering session means Tillis has had to split his time between negotiating in Raleigh as House speaker while running for the Senate. Tillis had a fundraiser scheduled Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

The longer the session lasts, the less time Tillis has to close a fundraising gap with Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan. Tillis’ campaign manager says he’d prefer the session be over but is confident they’ll have the resources to win.

Hagan’s campaign blames Tillis for a long session because of decisions last year to lower taxes that disproportionately help the wealthy.
