NC Senate Rejects House Budget Proposal

The North Carolina Senate rejected the House version of the state’s two-year spending plan, paving the way for budget negotiations. The Senate unanimously voted, 46-0, not to agree to the House proposal Tuesday that calls for spending more than $52 billion over the next two years and cuts taxes by $2 billion. The House also cut more taxes than the Senate. The Senate version reflects a $1 billion tax cut for North Carolinians.
