The Budget & Tax Center has released its initial analysis of the N.C. Senate’s budget proposal in a Brief, “N.C. Senate fails to prepare for federal uncertainty, state’s growing needs.” The Brief follows the money to detail missed opportunities for North Carolina in order to give more tax cuts to the wealthy and profitable corporations, and how the Senate pays for its budget with over-collections, federal money and reductions to the UNC system, Public Health, Housing Finance and Environment and Natural Resources, among other programmatic cuts.
