Two years ago, lawmakers passed a bill that stipulated the park be self-supporting by 2015. The bill called for systematic reductions in state funding to the site over the next 4 years. That gradual implementation was overlooked in the budget proposal Governor Pat McCrory submitted this year - and instead slashed all funding. So far this session, the general assembly shows no signs of reinstating it. Wed, 29 May 2013 21:04:06 +0000 Catherine Brand 16231 at http://wunc.org Roanoke Island Festival Park Faces Uncertain Future
