North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley issued the following response to Governor Cooper's veto of the state budget:
"For the last eight years, Republicans in the North Carolina General Assembly have cut taxes, increased education spending, and created an economy that is the envy of the country. It's disappointing to see Governor Cooper veto a pro-family, pro-education, and pro-business budget without even taking the time to read it. We call on the Governor to drop the politics, sit down with the General Assembly, and find a compromise that will work for all of North Carolina."
