Transparency in N.C. legislature needs to be real

In this last month of the N.C. legislature’s short session, as lawmakers were lumbering toward adjournment, they approved a bill to require candidates seeking office to file their campaign finance reports electronically starting in 2017. That’s a good piece of legislation that will make election campaigns more transparent. But the way lawmakers got it done, late at night and out of the public eye, only highlights the troubling lack of transparency that’s a constant with this legislature.
