"There's going to be pain, and there's going to be lots of pain."

Republicans to wield their power through redistricting
"This is the first time that Republicans have ever drawn the maps, and we want to set a new standard. We're going to show you how to draw them. This is our opportunity."

Incoming House Majority Leader Paul "Skip" Stam, R-Wake, has said he's pushing to repeal the nationally heralded legislation.

Where to trim the budget when there's nothing left
Lawmakers are about to tear into the state budget looking for $3.7 billion in cuts. That's roughly 20 percent of the state's $19 billion annual budget.
