RALEIGH — The budget cutting is getting serious in North Carolina as the recession continues.

Lawmakers have been forced to cut funding for education and health programs. The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday the cuts will likely hit lawmakers when they head to lunch.

The budget the House will debate next week includes a 10 percent increase in prices at the cafeteria in the basement of the legislative building. The cafeteria includes made-from-scratch items and banana pudding is a favorite.

The main dining area includes lobbyists, staffers, journalists and state employees from nearby buildings looking a good meal at a good price.

The restaurant prices cover the cost of the food, about $925,000 last year. State money pays for the rest, which includes the payroll.

NC tribe votes to allow casino alcohol sales

CHEROKEE, N.C. — Alcohol sales at a North Carolina mountain casino have been approved by members of the Cherokee Indian tribe.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Friday that the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians approved alcohol sales 1,847 to 1,301 after nearly half the tribe’s registered voters went to polls.

Supporters of alcohol sales said it would boost profits at the tribe’s casino. The tribe uses half the profits from the 11-year-old casino to run its government and half for twice-a-year
payments to tribal members.

It was the second alcohol sales vote, but the first since the casino was constructed. Tribal members voted 2-1 against alcohol sales in 1980.
