Lawmakers are disputing the use of the budget | Stock photo
North Carolina lawmakers met recently in Raleigh to discuss the state's budget, according to WLOS.
The news agency reported that Gov. Roy Cooper vetoed the budget in June, but the House overrode that veto in September.
State Sen. Terry Van Duyn (D-Buncombe) said she worried the stalemate would continue because neither side wanted to give in on core principles.
"It's beyond frustrating," House Rep. Chuck McGrady (R-Henderson) told WLOS. "Yeah, we've passed a series of mini-budgets, and what's ironic here is there were Democratic senators that voted for the budget who are now unwilling to vote to override the veto."
While the Senate will focus on the budget, the House will focus on scholarship money to be set for war veterans' children.
"On the House side, there will be one bill. It has to do with appropriating $2.5 million for scholarships for the children of war veterans," McGrady told the news agency.
