RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - State Medicaid officials are signaling their progress in bringing stability to the program with a statement that Medicaid has ended the fiscal year with cash left over.
 "As a result of the dedication to responsible budgeting practices by Governor McCrory and the General Assembly together with improved forecasting and management by the Department of Health and Human Services, North Carolina's Medicaid budget is in far better shape," said Secretary Aldona Wos, M.D. in the statement.

"Finishing with cash on hand for a second consecutive year is an indication that we continue to make progress in strengthening our state's Medicaid program."
Medicaid has drawn much media scrutiny for years. Prior to the past two fiscal years, the Medicaid program experienced shortfalls of nearly $2 billion over a four year period.

‘First In Freedom’ Joins 'First in Flight' as North Carolina License Plate Option PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Move over 'First in Flight.' North Carolinians now have the option of choosing a 'First in Freedom' license plate.

State officials are reviving the plate to recognize the state’s historic role in the creation of the United States. The plate became available July 1.

The phrase “First in Freedom” recognizes two “firsts” established by North Carolinians during the early stages of the American Revolution. The Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence and the Halifax Resolves have been noted throughout history as the first steps by one of the original 13 colonies to secede from Great Britain.

The new plate was designed by Troy resident Charles Robinson. The original debuted in 1975.

To apply for a “First in Freedom” license plate at no additional charge, vehicle owners must request the plate at the time of their registration renewal.
