State appropriations for the operations of the Manufacturing Solutions Center and the Textile Technology Center are included in the recurring budget for the State Community Colleges. The plan to create a North Carolina Fabrics Discovery and Innovation Center with the centers and North Carolina State University College of Textiles was suspended. Vocal opposition from a Senate appropriations chair prompted NCSU to pull back from the initiative. Timing may not help the undertaking. With $100 million going to special earmarks, the $7 million sought for the innovation center was not an insurmountable sum.
