Budget proposals so far: What you might have missed

As we wait on the Senate to release their budget proposal, here’s a look back at our coverage of the budget proposals from the Governor and the House.

General Analysis

  • A stroll down memory lane of recent tax budgets, with tax cuts as the guide rails: Tax changes passed since 2013 have not only significantly reduced revenue available for public investments, but also shifted the tax load to low- and middle- income taxpayers and away from the wealthy and profitable corporations.
  • North Carolina deserves better: North Carolinians are seeing how limited policymakers’ aspirations are for the future of communities and families. First, the Governor proposed a state budget that fell far short of what North Carolina needs to have thriving communities and broad prosperity. Then,  leaders of the House and Senate agreed on setting their sights even lower.
