McCrory gets center stage at Heritage Foundation

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory is taking the stage at one of the nation's leading conservative think tanks to talk about policies he's initiated in North Carolina.

McCrory is scheduled to speak at a Washington event Monday hosted by The Heritage Foundation. The event is entitled: "A Conversation with a Reformer: How the States are Leading the Way."

The new Republican governor has said his efforts at fiscal responsibility and a tax overhaul are putting the state on firmer financial footing and will help create private-sector jobs. Critics say McCrory is reversing decades of public education improvements in North Carolina while damaging the rights of voters and women through bills he's signed.

McCrory also planned to attend the annual meeting of the Association of the U.S. Army in Washington late Monday.
