Lawmakers Approve New Budget

The General Assembly has approved a 20 billion dollar spending plan that significantly helps county governments by providing new tax options and Medicaid relief.

The House approved the two-year spending plan by a 64-to-52 vote, the second of two required votes on the budget.

The Senate voted 31-to-19 in support of the measure.

Governor Easley is expected to sign the bill into law. Right now, there's a stopgap spending measure in place, but it expires late Tuesday.
