Statement from NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, M.D., on NC House Budget Veto Override


The budget and the House vote process are profoundly disappointing. In a time of a surplus, this budget makes massive cuts to DHHS that will potentially impact everything from health inspections of restaurants to the safety of drinking water to child protective services. This budget harms the people of North Carolina and fails to protect basic health and safety services that millions of people take for granted.
