This week in state politics, a conversation about a special session that wasn't and two bills making their way through the Legislature.

Republican lawmakers in North Carolina this week refused to hold a special session demanded by Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper to redraw General Assembly districts. Also, there's a proposed gun bill making its way through the Legislature and lawmakers are quickly advancing another bill that would overhaul the state's regulations on solar energy production.

Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Chris Fitzsimon, of NC Policy Watch, join WUNC's Jeff Tiberii to discuss the week's news.
