Gov. Perdue Today Issued the Following Statement Regarding the House Budget


Location: Raleigh, NC

"Last year, the General Assembly made deep and unnecessary cuts to K-12 schools in North Carolina. I want to prepare our children to compete not just with our neighbors, but to compete globally for high-paying, 21st Century jobs. In order to do that, we need an investment in education that moves North Carolina forward. The House's budget barely keeps us in neutral -- it locks in the cuts that one superintendent called "a cancer in our budget.' While their budget is insufficient in the K-12 area, funding levels for our community colleges and public universities are even worse. We need more revenue to adequately fund our education system. In order to do right by our children, we must invest in their future."
