RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory and his top budget writer are focusing on what’s not in his North Carolina government spending proposal for the coming year as compared to what’s in it.

McCrory unveiled Wednesday the adjustments he wants the General Assembly to consider when changing the second year of the two-year budget approved last summer. The governor keeps spending for the fiscal year starting July 1 at almost $21 billion.

Budget director Art Pope says the proposal would give pay raises to essentially all state employees and teachers without budget gimmicks or taking money from the rainy day reserve fund.

But it also finds savings by requiring the UNC system to trim 2 percent from its budget and keeping funds for teacher assistants at current levels.
