Doing the only responsible thing she could:
This budget will result in generational damage. It tears at the very fibers that make North Carolina strong – not only our schools, but also our communities, our environment, our public safety system and our ability to care for those who need us most.
The General Assembly may be satisfied with a state in reverse, but I am not. Therefore, I veto this bill.
Thank you, Bev. Whether they override or not, it was the right thing to do.
