Things got a little testy today between state Sen. Neal Hunt and Wake County school board member Jim Martin after a committee passed a bill giving authority for school construction to the county commissioners.
Following today's vote in the Senate Rules Committee, I interviewed Hunt in the hallway about the new bill that would limit the change in school construction authority to Wake. During the interview, Martin stepped in to ask Hunt questions.
Martin, an opponent of the bill, was not happy with Hunt's characterization at the committee meeting of the change as being needed to protect taxpayers.
Following the interview, Hunt told Martin to "get out of my face." They then proceeded to have a brief conversation in the Legislative Office Building hallway before Hunt got on the elevator.
