Legislative News: NC House Budget Vote This Week

As the Bulletin goes to press Wednesday afternoon, the North Carolina House is considering amendments to its spending plan, released yesterday.

House leadership anticipates the budget to be voted on tomorrow and Friday. While the total spending of $22.9 billion aligns with the Senate’s budget, there are differences that will need to be worked out in conference committee beginning next week. Legislative leaders are hopeful that consensus can be reached and the General Assembly will adjourn in time for the July 4 holiday.
