Notes 7-28-07

Legislators took time to honor the Tuskegee Airmen this week, including about 40 North Carolinians who were members of the famed cadre of black pilots that served in the segregated military during World War II. House Resolution 2063 lists the names of Tuskegee Airmen who were either born in or who live in North Carolina. Our state salutes them and their families.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation reports that child-wellness has improved in North Carolina. Although infant mortality has increased slightly - teen deaths, children living in poverty, and child deaths have all decreased. North Carolina ranks 39th in the United State in overall child-wellbeing.

As we near the conclusion of this session of the General Assembly, I encourage you to continue to share your thoughts and concerns regarding legislation and circumstances which affect you and your family.
