TAXES AND REGULATIONS
North Carolina’s economy is expanding after Republicans in the General Assembly cut billions in personal income and business taxes and eliminating unnecessary government regulations.
The budget proposal included a plan to cut personal income tax rates and raise the standard deduction to add 95,000 North Carolinians to the zero-tax bracket, building on Republicans’ tax relief and reform already provided to North Carolinians since 2011.
House Republicans increased education funding by more than $818 million and affirmed our dedication to our teachers by giving them a fourth conservative pay raise – nearly 10% over ten years.
In July 2017 North Carolina received four national economic distinctions as the #1 state for starting a business; the #5 best state for business in CNBC rankings one of only twelve states with a unanimous ‘AAA’ bond rating, the #5 state for budget solvency.
North Carolina: Moving Onward
The 2017 Legislative Session of the North Carolina General was very productive for our Republican members as we continued to build on the campaign promises we made in 2010. Our hard work and dedication to conservative principles continue to move North Carolina onward.
