Eight days a week

While only the Beatles could have eight days a week, and with a Friday and Saturday North Carolina House session likely this week, the Charlotte Observer’s Jack Betts has a great post today about how regular daily sessions dropped from six to five to four days per week over the last 65 years.

Jack concluded his post:

Legislators once spent at least parts of six days a week in Raleigh on formal sessions; Now it’s four days a week. But, of course, with technology and staff and sophisticated ways to analyze problems, lawmakers have many more ways to be productive. And a lot of them work on legislative business seven days a week, no matter whether they’re in Raleigh, Ramp Cove or Rodanthe.
