After three hours of debate, the NC House gave final approval to its budget Wednesday. The 72-47 vote included five Democrats who sided with the majority.

Wake County Republican Rep. Nelson Dollar [1] called the $19.3 billion package a “responsible, jobs budget.”

But Jackson County Democrat Rep. Phil Haire [2] questioned how Dollar could suggest it was a jobs budget when it ultimately will eliminate between 20,000 and 30,000 state jobs. Fellow Democrat Rep. William Wainwright [3] charged the Republican’s bill will reverse two decades of steady progress for North Carolina.
