Perdue talking storms of non-budget variety

Posted May 31, 2011

Gov. Beverly Perdue leaves behind the legislative storm over the state budget on Wednesday to head to Washington, D.C., to discuss hurricane preparedness efforts with President Obama at the White House.

June 1 is the start of the annual hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean.

Secretary of Crime Control and Public Safety Reuben Young, state Emergency Management Director Doug Hoell and New Hanover County Emergency Manager Warren Lee will join Perdue and Federal Emergency Management Agency officials at the White House briefing.

By the time she gets back to Raleigh, the legislative winds might be dying down on a $19.7 billion budget proposal that appears to have enough bipartisan support to overcome a potential veto.

    It amazes me how broke our state is and going to Washington to talk about Hurricanes...I could save a lot money by telling her to head to higher ground and wait til the storm goes by and then come out and clean up your yard like everybody else does.
