Greeting From Raleigh 6-23-06

My colleagues and I in the House and Senate started negotiations on the budget Tuesday and our work will continue until we reach an agreement on the state’s spending plan for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2006. In addition, we passed legislation on important issues such as cracking down on sex offenders, campaign finance reform, and protecting veterans and our military from identity theft. We also had a little “sports” fun on Wednesday and Thursday when we were lucky enough to have the Carolina Hurricanes and Olympic gold medalist Joey Cheek of Greensboro visit the General Assembly.
