Cooper Office Statement on the GOP Budget


Today, Ford Porter, spokesman for Governor Roy Cooper, shared the following comment after the legislature voted to override the Governor’s veto and pass a special interest budget that prohibited public input and amendment from other representatives:


“The broken Republican legislature has protected special interests and income tax breaks for corporations and families making over $200,000 a year instead of investing in education and the middle class. Legislative leaders rammed this budget through with no public input or the opportunity for amendment and North Carolina families should hold their representatives accountable.”
