Panel's tax plan trims fat

BY Wade Rawlins

A commission appointed by Gov. Mike Easley to study tax loopholes and government cost-saving measures delivered a list of tax code changes Friday that eventually would produce more than $ 200 million a year in revenue and possibly millions more in savings. The Commission on Efficiency and Loophole Closing also shifted some of the pain of the tax changes away from consumers and back to corporations, rewriting an earlier list of recommendations that would have saddled individuals with more of the new taxes.

Campaign finance inflation

BY Rah Bickley

Raleigh old-timers remember when it cost only $ 5 to file to run for City Council. Actually, relative newcomers probably remember, too, because that is how much it cost until Tuesday. That is when the Raleigh City Council voted to increase the filing fee to $ 100 for candidates for mayor and council. Requiring candidates to spend more than they would for a burger and fries should produce a more thoughtful stable of office-seekers, said Councilman John Odom.

NC CSE Director Sends Message To Legislators And Governor Easley's Loophole Committee

In a letter to the North Carolina General Assembly North Carolina CSE Director Jonathan Hill said the following: As you are aware, North Carolina Citizens for a Sound Economy (NCCSE) and its over 17,000 active members statewide are very concerned with the spiraling tax burden that is consuming their hard earned income. While North Carolina’s families are struggling to meet the needs of their families, the government is determined to find ways to capture more and more of their hard earned money.

Over 120 NC CSE activists, supporters, and concerned citizens crowded in a meeting room with standing room only at the Velvet Cloak Inn in Raleigh to challenge and plea with three Wake County Commissioners to not raise their taxes unnecessarily.

Legislators Look Elsewhere - No Tax Increases!

It is no surprise that Senator Albertson is losing support of other Senators for his proposed sales tax increase for school programs for at-risk children. Senator Albertson, an opponent of the lottery, but a supporter of raising taxes is obviously looking for a substitute for the controversial and doomed lottery proposal, but raising sales taxes is not the answer.

Make Education Look More Like America

Thank you, Dick. It was three years ago, here at the National Press Club, that I announced the formation of the Children’s Scholarship Fund. It has exceeded our fondest hopes as we have been able to help 40,000 low income children escape failing public schools and seek a quality education in the school of their choice. Personally, I have evolved from a person with simple charitable objectives into someone who has become painfully aware of the real facts of the education system in America.
