NC lawmakers agree how to close new Medicaid gap

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The Legislature has agreed on how to close an additional $75 million shortfall in North Carolina’s Medicaid program by letting Gov. Beverly Perdue’s administration tap into building repair money.

The House and Senate approved a measure Thursday that would set aside up to $94 million in the state’s repair and renovations account to reimburse medical providers for Medicaid patients. There’s been a recent unanticipated increase in provider invoices filed with the state. The shortfall was made public last week. Unused money will remain in the repair account.

The General Assembly agreed last month to a $206 million plan to close an earlier gap during the fiscal year that was attributed to several problems.

Thursday’s measure now goes to Perdue to become law.

Barringer resigns from UNC Board of Governors

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – A Cary attorney is resigning from his seat on the governing body of the 17-campus University of North Carolina system.

The resignation of Brent D. Barringer from the UNC Board of Governors was announced Thursday, one day after it became effective.

In a letter to the board, Barringer cited the need to devote more time to family, business, and professional responsibilities. He also said he wanted to give more time to his wife’s campaign for the North Carolina Senate.

Barringer was first elected to the board in 2003 and served on a number of committees. He was in the midst of a third four-year term which was to run through June 30, 2015.

The state House of Representatives will appoint a successor to serve out the remainder of Barringer’s term.
