Is NC the only state without a budget?


As of September 3, 45 states have enacted budgets for fiscal 2016.  Two states, New Hampshire and North Carolina, have enacted temporary spending bills for fiscal 2016. Alabama’s fiscal year does not begin until October 1, so they are in budget negotiations now and are still operating under their current fiscal year budget. Illinois and Pennsylvania have yet to finalize their budget or enact a temporary spending bill.
