NCDP Statement on Republican Piecemeal Budget Proposals

Raleigh –  NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement in response to Republicans proposing piecemeal budget bills instead of sending a counter-offer and negotiating with the Governor:

“These piecemeal budget proposals are nothing more than political gimmicks from Republicans who refuse to compromise or negotiate. Republican leaders are so used to getting their way that they’re willing to forgo good public policy and cost taxpayers millions of dollars for a budget that doesn’t come close to meeting North Carolina’s needs on public schools or affordable health care. Stop the political games and negotiate for a better budget.”
