RALEIGH, NC (AP) — An updated to-do list from Gov. Pat McCrory’s administration to spend taxpayer dollars to repair North Carolina government buildings has left out some bathroom renovations at the Executive Mansion.

A legislative committee signed off Tuesday on how McCrory and the University of North Carolina system planned to spend $150 million on building renovations.

The preliminary version of the list earlier this month earmarked $230,000 for remodeling bathrooms in McCrory’s private living quarters on the mansion’s second floor. That gave more fodder to critics of McCrory’s policies.

McCrory’s office later said no taxpayer money would be used to remodel or upgrade the bathrooms. The list of proposed projects Tuesday left out the project. The list retains $143,000 for the mansion for exterior woodwork and paint and to fix a steam valve.

    No taxpayers money used? Then where is the money coming from? Oh….. I bet that was my pay raise that I have not gotten in the last 7 years. Why don’t you do the upgrades yourself and save lots of money. You are living there. It is your home until you leave. I am glad he can live comfortable while as a state employee, we have to let things go just to feed our families and put gas in our vehicles. Thank the good Lord I did not vote for you!

    I hope that Mr. Robertson will choose to inform the reading public further. What dollar amount has been spent on Executive Mansion renovations since Governor McCrory took office?
