Pat McCrory laid out a 20 billion dollar budget for the state, and included in the budget are 135 million dollars in cuts to the University of North Carolina System Colleges and Universities.

State Senator Pete Brunstetter spoke last week about an idea to close a UNC campus to make up the budget gap.

Brunstetter was quoted as saying, "I think our members definitely envision that there could be some consolidation between campuses, and we might need to go from 16 down to 15, 14, something like that."

Brunstetter told News 2 he doe not want to see a local college closed, but said they should not rule out looking at other, lower performing colleges.
