This Week In NC Politics: A Conversation About The House Budget

Jun 2, 2017

This week in state politics, a conversation about the state House budget, which lawmakers passed early Friday morning. The House plan would cut taxes, fund pay increases for some teachers, and give an across-the-board $1,000 raise to state employees. It would also add $260 million  to the state's 'rainy day' fund.

Now that the House and Senate have each passed their own plans, the two chambers will work together on a final budget.

Becki Gray, of the John Locke Foundation, and Rob Schofield, of NC Policy Watch, join WUNC's Jeff Tiberii to discuss the week's news.
