McCrory has problems with House and Senate budgets

Governor Pat McCrory told the Associated Press he has concerns over the budget plans passed by both the state House and Senate Governor Pat McCrory told the Associated Press he has concerns over the budget plans passed by both the state House and Senate

 

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory says he's unsure if he and legislative leaders can agree on a final North Carolina state government budget before the new fiscal year begins in about two weeks.

McCrory told The Associated Press in an interview Monday his goal is still to have a budget he can sign into law by July 1. But McCrory says he has problems with parts of both the House and
Senate versions of the two-year spending plan.

Negotiations were expected to begin formally after the Senate rejects the House version of the budget. The Senate was slated to take up the House plan Monday night.

McCrory laid out several specific concerns he had with the Senate budget four weeks ago. He hasn't been as explicit with shortcomings in the House version.
