Governor Pat McCrory issued the following press statement this morning concerning the Senate's budget proposal:

"We are very pleased the Senate's budget proposal aligns with some of our major priorities and specific goals with jobs, energy, transportation and Medicaid," said Governor McCrory. "However, there are several areas that need further dialogue as they differ from the budget and policies I have previously laid out."

Several areas for further review include:

-Elimination of Special Superior Court judges
-Transfer of the SBI
-Exclusion of drug treatment courts
-No salary increases for state employees
-No expansion of pre-K
-No eugenics compensation
-Does not allow for routine legal services in each agency

"Today is the second step of a four-part budget process. These differences are still within the general parameters of our goals, and we look forward to working with the Senate and also reviewing the House budget proposal in the coming weeks."
