Governor Pat McCrory met with Senate Republicans Tuesday to try to narrow their differences over budget adjustments meant to be in place three weeks ago. McCrory's office and a top budget negotiator confirmed the 90-minute visit.
But, Senator Harry Brown says McCrory and senators did not have a breakthrough in the closed-door gathering. The Jacksonville Republican says the governor and lawmakers proposed potential compromises to end the delays preventing the budget's completion.
The governor and Senate Republicans don't see eye-to-eye on the size of teacher pay raises, the future of teacher assistants or Medicaid.
