NC Gov. Pat McCrory’s budget includes some raises, university cuts - COLIN CAMPBELL AND CRAIG JARVIS, News Observer

Gov. Pat McCrory on Thursday began outlining his proposed state budget for the next fiscal year – a plan the governor says is the result of making “tough choices” to produce a “thoughtful” proposal. The budget includes pay raises for starting teachers, corrections officers and state troopers, and it forces some cuts on the state’s university system. The budget proposal asks the UNC system to “identify savings” equal to 1.2 percent of its overall budget. McCrory’s budget message argues the cuts can be made “without any impact on students.” The budget would also ban universities from spending more than $1 million in state money on private fundraising. That mandate would affect 12 universities and cut $18 million.
