Today @NCCapitol (June 15): Senate budget watch

Posted June 15, 2015

— Good morning and welcome to Today @NCCapitol for Monday, June 15. Here's what's going on at the General Assembly and around state government.

SENATE: Senate leaders are scheduled to unveil their budget plans Monday. A news conference on the proposal is expected early Monday afternoon, followed by presentations in budget subcommittees at 4 p.m. Leaders say they hope to take a final vote on their proposal, which is expected to differ markedly from the House proposal, by the end of the week.

The Senate budget is expected to include the chamber's proposal to overhaul the state's Medicaid system.
