May 2015

Dear NCCCFA members:

VP External Legislative Update:


On Thursday, May 21, 2015 I called into the legislative review at the North Carolina Community College System Office (NCCCS).  The main focus for the community college system right now is the state budget.  The House of Representatives is holding debates on the budget on May 21.  As part of this budget they have proposed a 2% salary increase, and each community college president will be given the freedom to decide how that money is allocated.  They have also added another five days of non-expiring bonus days.  The concern right now is that the proposed budget from the House of Representative will now go to the Senate where there is a lot more concern about government spending.  Dr. Ralls made it very clear that everyone needs to start contacting their senators immediately as the Senate is expected to move very quickly on the state budget (in the next one to two weeks).   

As always, I urge you to look up your state representative and senator for where you live and where you work (if they are in different legislative districts).  I will be happy to provide assistance in contacting your representatives, and if you like I will happily help you meet with them in Raleigh.  Furthermore, please click the “what’s hot” link on the website for more detailed links to legislative information.  You can direct your questions to me via my email ( and you can also follow me on Twitter @DrTahmasebVP.
