Speaker Thom Tillis Press Release on Perdue veto.

April 18, 2011

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 16, 2011

Tillis Statement on Governor’s Veto     Raleigh – Speaker of the House Thom Tillis released the following statement concerning Governor Perdue’s veto today:     “With her third veto in four days, Gov. Perdue has simultaneously denied 37,000 North Carolinians extended unemployment benefits and she has proven that she places her political agenda ahead of providing economic certainty for counties, schools and businesses.       The Governor simply does not get it. The bill she vetoed was balanced and appropriate. Now, tens of thousands of our citizens will be denied desperately-needed support because of her selfish actions. And for what? So she can position herself to play games with the budget at the expense of everyone else. The Governor is supposed to serve our citizens, but today, the citizens suffered while the Governor clung to her power with this self-serving ploy.”     ###
