NC Budget and Tax Center

Statement from Alexandra Sirota on House Budget Release

Like the Senate, the House budget fails to invest in our state’s future. Since the House budget contains costly new policies, such as a school voucher program, it will be very difficult for the state to provide our kids with a quality education, which hurts not just kids, but our economy too. Businesses need a skilled workforce to grow and thrive, so failing to adequately invest in education will cause long term pain in our state.

The House budget also has a placeholder for an expensive tax package. The $525 million that the House plans to spend on tax cuts for the wealthy would be better used to improve our schools and communities.
