NC Senate leader expects teacher, employee raises

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. - The leader of the North Carolina Senate says a solution to rein in annual Medicaid shortfalls may wait until next year because the reform proposal by Gov. Pat McCrory's administration doesn't go far enough.
    
Sen. Phil Berger also said at a news conference Thursday before next week's annual General Assembly session he expects senators will offer more pay raises to teachers and state employees beyond previously announced increases for early-career teachers.
    
McCrory's Medicaid proposal would develop networks of primary care physicians or hospitals with financial incentives to keep costs in check. Some people want to go further and shift Medicaid management to one or multiple non-government organizations.
    
Berger says he doesn't know what a final coal ash cleanup bill will look like but says everyone's committed to protecting drinking water.
