Today the North Carolina House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) in order to fund State government functions through August 31, 2015 at 11:59pm. SB: 560 - 2015 Continuing Budget Authority allows the House and Senate to continue their current negotiations while continuing State funding at current levels established in mid-July.
“I am very encouraged by recent discussions with Senate leaders and confident that we will reach a final budget agreement very soon,” stated Speaker Moore (R-Cleveland) on Wednesday. “North Carolinians want and deserve a thoughtful, effective budget that responsibly invests in our State’s future. We will remain committed to providing our schools and teachers with certainty, while also ensuring that we give this process the time and attention that it truly needs to yield a successful end product.”
