Perdue statement

Hey all..

Just wanted to pass this statement along from Perdue spokesperson Chrissy Pearson

"The Senate today faces an important vote for America, and North Carolina is poised to receive federal stimulus money that could make a significant difference in the economic climate in our state.

Clearly there are areas in the Senate compromise bill that trouble us, but as Governor Perdue told the House Democratic Caucus on Friday, we are grateful that this bill is moving forward. It is a critical step towards addressing North Carolina’s fiscal emergency. Therefore, despite some concerns, we urge both our senators to vote “yes” tonight and tomorrow.

Afterward, we will look forward to working with our Congressional delegation and the White House to secure the improvements needed that will make this bill work for North Carolina – and will put North Carolina back to work."
