The glaring omission from Moeser

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needs more money from taxpayers and donors and more issues advocacy from faculty and administration members, Chancellor James Moeser said this Sept. in his first “State of the University” speech to the Chapel Hill campus.

Senate Rejects House Bond Proposal

The Senate, on June 13, rejected a House bill that would have allowed N.C. citizens to vote on a $1.2 billion bond package for UNC system schools through a statewide referendum. The Senate had passed it’s own version of the bill, which would allow the state to issue $3 billion in state bonds and the UNC Board of Governers to issue an unlimited amount of “special obligation bonds” without a voter referendum. A conference committee has been appointed to work out a compromise bill.
