Governor’s office statement on state budget

The following is a press release from Governor Roy Cooper’s office

Ford Porter, spokesperson for Governor Roy Cooper, shared the following comment on where things stand with the state budget process:

“We want a budget that invests in teacher pay instead of more tax cuts for corporations, that has a school and infrastructure bond instead of a slush fund, and that includes Medicaid expansion to insure 500,000 more North Carolinians. Right now, legislative Republicans are not interested in serious negotiations on these issues, but we hope they will change their minds and agree to put everything on the table as Governor Cooper has.”
