McCrory's got problems with House, Senate budgets

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Gov. Pat McCrory says he's unsure if he and legislative leaders can agree on a final North Carolina state government budget before the new fiscal year begins in about two weeks.

McCrory told The Associated Press in an interview Monday his goal is still to have a budget he can sign into law by July 1. But McCrory says he has problems with parts of both the House and Senate versions of the two-year spending plan.

Negotiations are expected to begin in earnest after the Senate rejected the House version of the budget Monday night. A conference committee will now work out differences.

McCrory laid out several specific concerns he had with the Senate budget four weeks ago. He hasn't been as explicit with shortcomings in the House version.
