Tuesday Wrap: Like white shoes and seersucker after Labor Day edition
Posted September 8, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — Top lawmakers say they worked through most of Labor Day weekend, but there is still no budget deal. House Speaker Tim Moore says he hopes to have a final plan ready to roll out by the end of the week, but Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger called that “optimistic.”
The two top leaders say there’s generally agreement to pay for all the teaching assistants that were on the books last year but disagreement over how that money can be used. Both men say negotiations over a proposed tax cut have made very little progress.
