- Attorney general Josh Stein says he looks out for what’s harming the lives of North Carolinians. Then he goes after it.
- That could be the headaches of the day-to-day, from canceled flights to the difficulty of getting Taylor Swift tickets, that expose deeper-rooted issues in society.
- It also includes more serious problems, like opioid abuse, which kills thousands of residents each year.

In the new year, he’s going after TikTok for its risks to young people, and is proceeding with legal action against polluters who dumped harmful contaminants into the state’s environment.
