The North Carolina House of Representatives has begun debate of a new version of the budget. It contains several changes from the version introduced earlier this week, including a $40 million reduction to film incentive grants over the next two years, and changes to renewable energy policies, House leaders said at a press conference.
The exact changes weren’t immediately clear, because the language hasn’t been widely released. Usually, budgets must be published 48 hours before a vote. Rules committee chairman David Lewis said this one will operate on a shorter timeline.
