Tarte spent about 20 minutes touching on a variety of topics, including the 2011 Reevaluation Bill, North Carolina’s ability to attract new businesses, term limits, and the airport authority.

Tarte, who was given the highest rating for a freshman senator by The North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation, found his way into public office at the urging of his grandfather who told him to go out and do something about the things he didn’t like.
