NC Budget: Temporary Spending Plan

Gov. Beverly Perdue has signed into law a temporary spending plan to run North Carolina government while a final budget gets worked out.

A Perdue spokesman said she signed the bill late Tuesday
afternoon, soon after the Legislature sent the stopgap measure to
her and hours before the new fiscal year began Wednesday.

The bill directs Perdue and state agencies to spend at levels no
more than 85 percent of what was allocated in the past year's
budget. It gives House and Senate Democrats two more weeks to work
out a final budget compromise for the next two years.
