N.C. State Budget Approved Following Veto

(North Carolina News Network)–The GOP-controlled General Assembly made good on its promise to override Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s veto of the two-year state budget. The Senate did its part Tuesday and the House completed the override with a vote of 76-43 Wednesday. Now the two-year spending plan becomes state law and largely takes effect when the new fiscal year begins this weekend. The override means all five of Cooper’s vetoes since taking office in January have been overturned. Cooper’s veto marked the second time a state budget had been vetoed – the other one occurred in 2011.
