PINEHURST -- Gov. Bev Perdue today proposed a sweeping reorganization of state government including merging state agencies, a hiring freeze for state employees, and other measures aimed at cost savings.
The governor said such steps were necessary because North Carolina faces a budget shortfall next year, which analysts now project to be $3.7 billion.
“Today, I lay out in broad strokes the picture of what I believe North Carolina’s state government must become as we change the very way state government works,” Perdue said in remarks prepared for delivery before a Chamber of Commerce group.
