Porch Quote 

Nip and tuck
"If your division cancels travel, cancels contracts, delays hiring, stops important projects, etc., please understand that they're not being grinches, they're working hard to meet the Dept.'s targets and to help keep the state's budget balanced."
--From an employee e-mail written by state Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Bill Holman after the State Budget Office asked agencies to help make up for the state's $300-$350 million shortfall. Reprinted from The News & Observer.
