NCGA: Wednesday and Thursday.

Committee meetings start in earnest this morning. Of interest today is the House floor debate and vote on HB 2: Protect Health Care Freedom, SB8: No Cap Charter Schools and finally SB13: Balanced Budget Act.

Some quick information on SB13: Balanced Budget Act. This bill will give Governor Perdue the ability to go into this years current budget (FY2010) and cut an additional $400 million dollars. This action was something that Governor Bev Perdue has been asking for and according to Senate leadership the figure of $400 million is what the governor said she could raise. This additional savings in theory would create more of a buffer for the upcoming budget process.

Here is the calendar:
