House Democrats: GOP budget cuts "massive"

Posted April 14, 2011

State House Democrats warned today that the majority Republicans' budget proposal "sets North Carolina back many, many, many years."

Wednesday, the House GOP rolled out its proposals for a spending plan that includes major cuts to agencies and programs across the board. Education would lose $1.25 billion dollars.  The cuts to the UNC system alone would equal the entire budgets of 5 of its 16 campuses.  

Rep. Rick Glazier, D-Cumberland, called the cuts "stunningly massive," saying they would lead to more than 20,000 lost jobs in state schools and universities.
