From the Observer:
The new finalized budget includes the money for the Uptown Classroom Building in its entirety as well as over $5 million to distribute across the UNC system for the recruitment and retention of professors.

I think they’ll have to hold a vote in House, then Senate, then the gov. will sign it.

Love him or hate him, House Speaker Jim Black consistently brings it home for UNC Charlotte.
