Budget passes Senate, gets initial approval in House

The Republican’s proposed revision to the 2018-19 budget passed its final vote in the Senate this morning, 36-14, and it received initial approval in the House, 72-45. The House will vote on the budget one more time tomorrow morning before it is sent on to Governor Roy Cooper. 

Because the budget is in a conference report, no amendments are allowed. The current version of the budget is exactly the same as the version that was unveiled Tuesday night. 

The chart below shows who voted nay and who voted yay in the House today.
