Greetings From Raleigh 6-02-06

We had another busy week in Raleigh as we continue to make progress on the budget and other pieces of legislation. House budget leaders expect to finalize our budget plan in the next two weeks and then members of the House and Senate will work together to reach a compromise on spending levels for the fiscal year beginning July 1. My colleagues and I also passed legislation on several other issues this week including increasing the state’s minimum wage, a ban on video poker machines, and improved training requirements for campaign treasurers.

Please be aware that you can listen to each day’s session, committee meetings, and press conferences on the General Assembly’s website at Once on the site, select “audio,” and then make your selection – i.e. House Chamber, Senate Chamber, Appropriations Committee Room or Press Conference Room. You can also catch a weekly wrap up of the legislature on Legislative Week in Review airing Friday evenings at 10 p.m. on WUNCTV, repeating Sundays at 1 p.m.
