I do not understand what the recurring money is but if the governor drags her feet then our state is in jeopardy of losing that money. So I think it is looking good for us or can this be the light at the end of the tunnel.

I hope so that is for sure
So she needs to sign or veto right away. If she holds it for the 10 days, is that for sure we would lose the money? Does she understand that?

Food is easy to get, all the unemployed here who have kids either make enough from a spouse to feed the kids, or can get food stamps, and free/cheap medical, so feeding and making sure they are healthy are not really an issue here.

Making sure they have the tools to succeed in life, aka an education is an issue.

That is good news! As long as Bev doesn't hold it.

I'd also like to say that, while I certainly don't agree with how Tillis handled this, at least his office had the courtesy of answering the phone, returning calls/emails and making weekly statements.

I sent 46 emails to Bev Perdue = Zero returned emails
I called 29 times (not one answer) and left my number =Zero returned calls

She has completely lost my support from this EB issue.

LOL I have been saying the same until I am blue in the face!
