Perdue tries to get lawmakers moving on budget

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue is trying again to persuade Republican legislative leaders to negotiate with her so that changes for next year’s North Carolina state budget will take effect on time.

Perdue said Thursday in a statement there is an additional $117 million in revenue this year available to use for public schools, to hire probation and parole officers and meet other needs.

The General Assembly sent last week sent Perdue budget adjustments for the year starting July 1. She has until Sunday to veto the bill or let it become law. She said the bill falls short in education spending.

Budget-writer and GOP Sen. Pete Brunstetter downplayed Perdue’s statement as misleading. He says the extra revenue is largely a timing issue and North Carolina’s financial picture is no better.
