Statement on Senate Tax Plan from Alexandra Forter Sirota, Budget & Tax Center Director

 

RALEIGH (June 11, 2013) — The Senate leadership has taken a bad plan from the House and made it worse.  

Failing to heed the advice of economists, Senate leaders created a tax plan that will reduce available revenue by more than $4 billion over five years when fully implemented, putting at risk our state’s foundation of economic growth – our public schools, universities, infrastructure, and safe communities – all in order to pay for tax cuts that will benefit the wealthiest taxpayers and profitable corporations.
