The state faces a $3.5 billion shortfall for fiscal year 2011-12 because of the continually weak economy, the end of federal aid and the expiration of the temporary tax package, said Alexandra Forter Sirota, of the N.C. Tax and Budget Center.

The final state general fund budget for FY 2010-11 was about $18.9 billion.
