Can I say a few words of gratitude
Molly Mahoney
If you haven't already, can you give a status update on where expansion stands in N.C. -- when in effect?
Leslie Winner
Does NCJC also have a view on the CON bill? Won’t doing away with it hurt struggling hospitals and clinics?

Thank you Everyone, I also wanted to mention that you all had the exclusive screening of the short, vigil video-you're the first to see it!
Mark Trustin
If one assumes the Supreme Court decision will be to order the Legislature or State to fully fund Leandro, what is the republican leadership of the legislature likely to do, in response, and what do you see as the likely eventual outcome?
Mark Trustin
Is there any reason why the court cannot order that Leandro be fully funded, especially since the state has about $6 billion without earmark for any other purpose? Thanks. Mark
Matt Ellinwood
Not that i can think of!
