Statement from Together NC on Tax Plan passed by House and Senate

RALEIGH (July 17, 2013) — The tax plan passed today by the state House and Senate fails to build a better North Carolina. In fact, the plan tears down what our state has worked hard to achieve over the last several decades: quality public schools, world-class universities, accessible health care, and preserving our natural resources -- all of which are critical to the state’s economic prosperity and quality of life.

The tax plan endangers these vital public investments, and everyone will pay the price.  This isn't a good strategy for growing our economy and it doesn't fix the very real problems with our tax code.
