Thank the NC General Assembly!
Session is moving quickly. The Senate has approved its recovery package. The House is still making final adjustments. While the packages still differ slightly, the House, Senate and Governor have agreed on two major requests made by NCAH:
- All three proposals include $6,000,000 for the Feeding the Carolinas food banks!
- With the unanimous passage of an amendment to SB 704 COVID-19 Recovery Act, all three proposals now include $78,000,000 for school nutrition programs!
It remains to be seen how the rest of the budget process will move forward, and whether one chamber will pass the proposal from the other, or whether both chambers will enter conference committee. Either way, know that NCAH will continue to advocate for our priorities, and we will update you as quickly as possible.
