CFCC Marine Tech Program funding in the state budget

READ MORE:

RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) - Cape Fear Community College's Marine Tech Program didn't get drowned out of this year's state budget afterall.

College Spokesman David Hardin says funding the program is in, and that while anything can happen until its approved, its pretty much too late to take it out.

"We're very excited that the General Assembly kept us in the budget," Hardin told us.

Governor Bev Perdue had earmarked the program for cuts in her budget earlier this year.
