Over the last few months, CPAC has called on the North Carolina General Assembly to secure tax cuts and conservative policy wins for the people without linking these policies to special-interest projects. Thankfully, conservatives in the legislature stood their ground and were victorious. Because of them, North Carolina families can now rejoice as the recently-passed state budget brings the state’s personal tax rate down to 3.99% by 2026, while implementing revenue triggers which could drop the rate as low as 2.49%.
Additionally, in one of the most positive public policy trends currently sweeping through the country, North Carolina has become the tenth state to pass a version of universal school choice. This pro-family policy allows parents, rather than the government, to decide the best educational option for their kids.
North Carolina’s conservative legislators deserve credit for sticking together in this fight. They did not let the threats from special interest groups or Democrat Governor Roy Cooper stop them from putting together a package which delivers for North Carolina’s families.
