Perdue pitches education, compensation for eugenics victims in final budget proposal

Gov. Bev Perdue has submitted a budget proposal to Gov.-elect Pat McCrory, a step required under state law.

The proposal is a symbolic parting shot for the outgoing Democrat, and spokeswoman Chris Mackey acknowledged the goal is to put focus on issues the governor holds close.

In adjustments to the biennial budget for fiscal years 2014 and 2015, Perdue singles out early childhood education funding, compensation for victims of eugenics and adult care programs, among other issues that have recently been points of contention.

"As the economy continues to recover, we need to preserve and maintain our long history of fiscal discipline, but at the same time, we must continue our tradition of investing in North Carolina and its nearly ten million residents," Perdue said in a statement.
