A decision on NC teacher raises in 10 days?

Posted: Updated:

Representative Craig Horn believes that in the next ten days politicians will be on the same page when it comes to balancing the state's $21 billion budget.

The sticking point, Horn says, is Medicaid.

Horn says issue number one this year is teacher raises. The Senate wants to give an 11% raise to teachers with strings attached, while the House wants to give a 5% raise with no strings attached. 

Horn believes the teacher raise this year will be between 5% and 7%. 

He also believes it will be a raise that will last for years to come.
