Greetings From Raleigh 7-08-05
Budget negotiations dominate the news from the Legislature this week. House members are hopeful that the budget can be finalized in the next several weeks prior to the end of the continuing resolution on July 20,2005.
Several important environmental bills were approved by the House this week including efforts to better protect drinking water, establish a global warming study commission, and establish a salt water fishing license.
As I've said many times, I hope you will continue to let me know how you feel about the issues that are being debated by the North Carolina General Assembly and the challenges you and your family are facing each day. It is an honor and a privilege to represent you in Raleigh.
