Governor McCrory Calls For Sequester Solution In Washington, DC

Governor Pat McCrory is calling on President Obama and congressional leaders to find a solution to the looming sequestration.

Governor McCrory is in Washington, D.C. this weekend as part of the National Governors Association’s annual meeting of the minds.

“North Carolina has 5 major military bases, so we’re extremely concerned about sequestration. But, more than anything, we want Washington to fix this problem. Right now I want to ask the president, along with congressional leaders, to get in a room and do what governors are doing across this nation and start reading their budget and make the tough decisions, as opposed to across the board cuts,” said Governor McCrory on the sequester stalemate.

Sessions over the next 4 days will include meetings with the President, members of his Cabinet, business leaders, and other experts to discuss issues affecting all states. Top agenda items include tax reform, cyber security, improving public school systems, employing people with disabilities, and extreme weather events.
