RALEIGH, (AP) — Gov. Beverly Perdue is asking Republican legislative leaders to try harder to find more money for public education after she says their budget bill falls short.

 
But Perdue didn't tell reporters Tuesday at a news conference whether she would veto the $20.2 billion spending plan for next year if GOP leaders don't find extra funds for the schools.
 
Senate leader Phil Berger and House Speaker Thom Tillis wrote to Perdue earlier Tuesday saying there isn't consensus in the Legislature on changes she recommended to them last week.
 
Perdue has until Sunday night to sign the bill into law, veto it or let it become law without her signature. She vetoed the two-year budget last year, but the Legislature overrode it.
