NCDP Statement on Republicans’ Proposed Budget

Raleigh – NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement in response to Republicans’ latest budget proposal:

“Republican leaders have refused to participate in serious negotiations with the Governor, resulting in a budget crafted behind closed doors by a few party leaders that once again puts corporate tax cuts before important investments in public education, affordable health care, and North Carolina families. Worse, Republican leaders kept their heads in the sand and refused yet another opportunity to expand access to lifesaving health care purely for ideological and political reasons. North Carolina Democrats will continue to fight for a better budget for our people and our state.”
