Conferenced Budget passes NCGA, Governor Vetoed in less than 24 Hours
The state House of Representatives approved the compromised budget with the Senate by a final vote of 64-49. The budget was vetoed by Governor Cooper the following morning. The budget includes pay raises for state employees and teachers. There is over 32 million dollars of funding for the 94th district. Items range from school construction dollars to economic projects. The veto from Gov. Cooper means the state will go into CR on July 1st. The state will operate on last year budget amounts. Effects of this include; pay freezes and nonrecurring grants are stopped. This can create chaos for employees and programing across the state.
