Gov. Perdue's Statement on Budget Override

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Raleigh, NC

"The General Assembly forced a flawed budget on the people of North Carolina today. Under their budget, schools will receive $190 million less next year than they received this year; economic development initiatives to help companies create jobs in the biotech and manufacturing sectors will go unfunded; and North Carolina families will be less safe because there won't be enough probation officers. I tried repeatedly to reach a bipartisan compromise with the leaders of the General Assembly to improve their budget, but they chose confrontation over compromise. This budget doesn't do enough to invest in our future; it isn't good enough for North Carolina."
