Forsyth County on the job

With Dale Folwell in the house assuming a committee chair and Sen. Pete Brunstetter wielding a budget axe, Forsyth County is well represented in the new majority:

The Senate Appropriations Committee is in session this morning working on the Balanced Budget Act granting Perdue one-time authority to cut spending the remainder of this year. The bill is sponsored by Sens. Pete Brunstetter (R-Forsyth), Neal Hunt (R-Wake), and Richard Stevens (R-Wake). The aim is to cut spending between now and June 30 by another $400 million. Perdue had already cut the budget significantly, but she evidently had gone as far as her budget powers allowed.
