State Budget: Vote One--APPROVED PDF Print
Written by Steve Frank   
Tuesday, 29 June 2010 21:07

 

Both chambers of the state legislature approved a $19 billion budget yesterday that orders cuts across state government, action that would likely end in-home medical services for 14,000 Medicaid patients in North Carolina.

The Senate voted for the budget Tuesday 31-16. In the House the tally was a more narrow 66-49. The budget still requires another vote in both chambers before it takes effect. That vote could come today, which would create a rare opportunity for the state to have a budget in place before the July 1 start of the next fiscal year.

 

The Raleigh News & Observer said debate in both chambers split mostly down party lines. Democrats said the budget was their best attempt to cope with an $800 million revenue shortfall. Republicans said the budget didn't cut deep enough and didn't take any action to prepare for next year's deficit that could grow to $3 billion after taxes and federal stimulus dollars expire.
