House Speaker gives budget timeline

— House Speaker Thom Tillis announced Monday night that the House's version of the state budget will be voted on next week.

Tillis said the budget bill will be posted online over the weekend and will finish its trip through committees on June 11.

Floor debate and votes are scheduled for June 12-13.

Tillis warned House members to expect those sessions to run as long as six hours each.  

After that, it will go back to the Senate for concurrence and almost certainly into a conference committee. 

That leaves slightly more than two weeks for the two chambers to reach agreement and for the governor to sign it before the June 30 deadline. 

Tillis pledged that the conference report, when it emerges, will be available 48 hours before a final vote.
