Sen. Berger Statement on Budget Veto
Raleigh, N.C. – Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued the following statement regarding Governor Roy Cooper’s veto of the state budget:
“I personally handed to the Governor the legislature’s opening positions on the items he described as major priorities. I asked for a counter-offer, and the Governor never provided one. “This is and has always been about Medicaid expansion. The Governor is blocking funds for teacher and state employee raises, the rape kit backlog, the Human Trafficking Commission, and other crucial investments so he can can brag to his far-left base that he vetoed the budget over Medicaid expansion. “I continue to await any counter-offer whatsoever from this Governor.”
