Greetings From Raleigh 8-05-05
This was another busy legislative week in Raleigh. House and Senate members continued our work on the budget and other legislation that must pass before the end of the session. We're getting close to a final agreement on the budget and it is anticipated that we'll be able to get it wrapped up by early next week. Several other important topics were discussed in committee or on the House floor this week, including a tax credit for small businesses, an increase in the state's minimum wage, a ban on smoking in restaurants, and improved environmental enforcement.
REMINDER: SALES-TAX-FREE WEEKEND STARTS TODAY
As always, it continues to be an honor and a privilege to represent you in Raleigh
