Brunstetter: Budget coming in May
Posted April 11, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Lobbyists, budget groupies and the rest of official Raleigh can relax a bit.
Sen. Pete Brunstetter, R-Forsyth, the senior budget chairman in the Senate, said we are still weeks away from the budget subcommittees beginning their public work on the state spending plan.
"It will probably be early to mid-May," Brunstetter said Thursday after the Senate adjourned for the week.
He said budget writers were still waiting on tax collection numbers following April 15 as well as work to be done by the Finance Committee on tax reform bills.
