While there is again little of substance to report this week on the details of a state budget, work has been going on quietly at the General Assembly. The House and Senate appear close to finalizing a conference budget which they then plan to present to Governor Cooper – possibly this week – to gather his input before bringing the budget to a vote. The goal in all of this is to attempt to reach consensus on a budget that will work for all parties before the General Assembly sends it to the Governor's desk for his final approval. Legislative leaders have indicated an early October timeframe for when that is likely to occur.
Regardless of exact timing, it looks as if budget negotiations will run right into the post-Census redistricting process slated to be taken up by the General Assembly in October.
