‘Dangerous’ constitutional amendment proposal would limit state’s ability to thrive (video)

Coming up this weekend on NC Policy Watch’s News & Views, we hear from NC Budget & Tax Center director Alexandra Sirota on Senate Bill 75, a constitutional amendment proposal that would seriously limit our state’s ability to build thriving communities.

SB 75, which could be voted on on the floor Tuesday, locks in an arbitrarily low income tax rate that has primarily benefited wealthy taxpayers. Sirota says this low income tax rate will mean moving forward the state cannot support public schools, public health and the programs that ensure the environment is protected at the necessary levels.
