NC House Speaker Tim Moore Responds to Governor Cooper’s Unrealistic Budget Proposal

NC Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) released the following statement Wednesday following the release of Governor Roy Cooper’s budget proposal:

North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore said, “Governor Cooper’s budget proposal takes the same reckless approach to spending that his fellow Democrats have taken in Washington. Unfortunately, this kind of runaway spending has resulted in a failing economy that has left millions of Americans behind.”

He continued, “The General Assembly will continue on the fiscally responsible path that has made our state attractive to so many. Now Governor Cooper is proposing a budget that effectively eliminates the tax cuts that will help North Carolinians make ends meet and have attracted families and businesses to our state. Over a decade of Republican budget leadership has put North Carolina on solid financial ground. This is no coincidence– our fiscally responsible approach to spending works.”
