Statement on final budget deal announcement from Alexandra Sirota, Budget & Tax Center

North Carolina leaders have missed another opportunity to build an economy that works for everyone.

Rather than making the truly tough choices that reflect the priorities of North Carolinians, policymakers have once again decided to cut taxes and forgo critical investments that boost the economy.

Such investments include providing every child with a sound education; bolstering the public sector foundation that supports innovation, builds opportunities for research and development, and trains workers; and protecting the health and well-being of our state’s residents and communities.

These should be our leaders’ priorities, not tax cuts that continue to shift the tax load onto average North Carolinians and push costs down the road.
