Today the NC House of Representatives gave final approval to the 2023 Appropriations Act in a bipartisan vote.
Among other things, this budget expands school choice to all North Carolina families, cuts taxes, bans COVID-19 mandates, makes significant investments in rural infrastructure, and makes record investments in mental health.
NC House Speaker Tim Moore said, “I could not be prouder of the budget approved by the House today, and I am encouraged by the bipartisan support it received from my friends on the other side of the aisle. Thanks to the fiscally responsible work of this General Assembly on behalf of the people of North Carolina, we have made significant investments where they are needed most.”
He continued, “The record investments we have made in water and sewer infrastructure, mental health, workforce development, transportation, community colleges, education, and more, will have lasting impact on North Carolina families that will be felt statewide. I look forward to Senate approval and the Governor’s signature on the 2023 Appropriations Act so it can be enacted as soon as possible.”
