Governor Cooper Issues Statement on Budget Veto Override


Governor Cooper released the following statement on the override of his budget veto:
“Republican legislators have doubled down on the wrong priorities for our state. I said I would sign a budget if legislators would target the income tax breaks to middle class families and invest the savings on education and job creation. Unfortunately, legislative Republicans refuse to compromise and have passed a budget that leaves middle class families behind. We must do better for our students and working families."
