NC House Finalizes, Approves $21 Billion Budget; Teacher Raises Included

RALEIGH, N.C.-- Saturday morning, the state house gave its final approval to a $21 billion budget that raises pay for public school teachers by an average of 7 percent.

The spending plans cuts include trimming millions of dollars from programs including public health, childhood development and early education.

McCrory notes that the final budget turned back from earlier proposals to cut teacher assistants in early classroom grades and makes Medicaid eligibility more difficult.

The budget budget now goes to the governor for his signature.
