As reported in Under the Dome:
The N.C. Senate voted unanimously Monday night not to go along with the budget the House approved
Delegations from the two chambers will now meet to work out a compromise,
Lynn Bonner reports.
The House passed an $18.6 billion budget that includes $780 million in new
taxes. The Senate's previously approved spending plan, drafted before the worst
of the state's revenue news had come in, weighs in at $20 billion. It contains
$500 million in new taxes, but senators haven't approved a plan spelling out how
that money is raised.
