Greetings From Raleigh 5-26-06
Members of the House Appropriations Committee continued working this week on its budget proposals for the new fiscal year, while members of the Senate gave final approval to their plan. In coming days, the House will step up its budget work so the differences between the two versions can be worked out and the budget passed by July 1st. In addition, legislators were busy again this week drafting and introducing new legislation on topics including education, improving and protecting our environment, capping the state’s gas tax, and many others.
