Republicans are in control of the Legislature. Now what? 

Legislative Preview

The GOP targets public education for deep cuts
"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."

The Racial Justice Act: GOP could repeal or amend landmark legislation
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.

The ultra-conservative agenda
Ultra-conservative groups such as Americans for Prosperity–NC and the John Locke Foundation, an arm of the Art Pope empire, have issued their marching orders for the 2011 legislative session.
