Senate Republicans Move NC Budget To House

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Senate Republicans are handing off their vision of North Carolina's state budget to their House counterparts.

 

The Senate gave its final approval Thursday to a government spending plan of roughly $21 billion for each of the next two years. Like Wednesday's initial vote, the 33-17 margin was along party lines in favor of Republicans.

 

House Republicans will make changes to the Senate's plan and eventually the chambers will work out a final plan to present to GOP Gov. Pat McCrory.

 

The House is likely to look long and hard at Senate provisions that would transfer the State Bureau of Investigation to a McCrory Cabinet agency and eliminate a dozen Special Superior Court judgeships. The House also is expected to offer a smaller tax cut next year than the Senate.
