McCrory vows veto if final budget includes Senate’s numbers

As budget-talks head toward the weekend, Governor Pat McCrory took the unusual step Thursday of issuing a press release pledging to veto the Senate’s budget proposal, if those were somehow the final numbers to come out of the budget-writers’ conference committee.
And McCrory has made it clear that it’s the new House plan he supports:
“The Senate is currently standing by themselves with no visible support outside of the Beltline of our state capital.”
“I will veto the latest Senate plan or any plan that resembles it because I know of no financial way we can go beyond the House proposal without eliminating thousands of teacher assistants, cutting Medicaid recipients and putting at risk future core state services,” said the governor in a press release.
