RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) - Gov. Roy Cooper said at a news conference Monday morning that he will veto the $23 billion state budget that was passed by the General Assembly.
"We need a budget that matches the big dreams of our people," Cooper said. "[This budget] is not the direction I envision for our state."
Cooper said he needs to see certain changes to the budget, such as more education funding and revisions to tax policy, before he will sign it.
