N.C. legislature proposes new ‘piecemeal’ budget plan for UNC System - Jean Brannum, Technician
On Thursday, North Carolina legislature proposed a new “piecemeal” budget plan for the 2019-20 school year. The plan will attempt to tackle time-sensitive budget issues, namely employee raises, in the UNC System following a veto of the state budget by North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper in late June. According to Holly Durham, assistant vice chancellor of finance, the veto means the state doesn’t have a new budget for the upcoming year and will continue to use the 2018-2019 budget.
