Education Matters – One-on-one with Gov. Roy Cooper

Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed the budget passed by the NC General Assembly on June 28 and offered up a counter proposal a week later. Now, more than a month has passed and the General Assembly has yet to bring a veto override vote to the floor and, publicly, there seems to be little movement on a budget both sides will accept. This week we sat down with Gov. Cooper and discussed the state of the budget, his priorities particularly in education, and what’s next now one month into a new fiscal year without a state budget.
