Featured Audio

From Carolina Journal Radio Program No. 691: North Carolina’s criminal code is much larger than those in neighboring states.

Many of the state’s crimes target small business owners and entrepreneurs who fail to fill out proper paperwork or jump through bureaucratic hoops. Becki Gray, the John Locke Foundation’s vice president for outreach, discusses efforts to fight overcriminalization in North Carolina.
