Posted By Allan Freyer On October 16, 2013 @ 3:39 pm In NC Budget and Tax Center | Comments Disabled

While rumors swirl about a deal to re-open the federal government, the impact of the shutdown on North Carolina is becoming ever more apparent. In this week’s issue of Prosperity Watch [1], Tazra Mitchell looks at the consequences of the federal government shutdown on children, the most vulnerable residents of our state, and specifically at the suspension of child care subsidies that are hurting kids and forcing their parents to choose between caring for their kids and going to work. For more, see the latest issue of Prosperity Watch [1].
