As lawmakers work through the state budget, there is concern about the future of a historic landmark in North Carolina's colonial capital due to lack of funding.
Department of Cultural Resources officials said the senate budget leaders did not include adequate funding for Tryon Palace relative to the House and Governor's versions.
The House budget included an allocation of $400,000 to the $100,000 previously budgeted for Tryon Palace, the minimum needed to keep the palace and the complex open to the public at current service levels.
The Governor's proposed budget gave Tryon Palace $520,000.
Since 2010, Tryon Palace officials said they have faced 40% in reduced support from the state.
