Abstract:
The Interstate highway system in North Carolina faces daily issues of clogging, high traffic volume, and accidents. Unfortunately, over the next 35 years, the state of North Carolina will need to spend $11.3 billion in reconstruction and $9.4 billion to widen the roads. John Hood, president of the John William Pope Foundation suggests that rather than raising the sales tax, the state should consider using tolls to pay for interstate improvements.

Abstract:
North Carolina’s laws enable banks to dodge millions in taxes. The Durham-based Institute for Southern Studies and Asheville-based Investigative Reporting Fund have suggested that the state’s bank tax laws need reformed. Campaign contributions, lobbyists, grassroots organizing, influential board members, and a system of rewards and punishments for incumbent legislators have allowed the banks to create a tax system that favors them. A look at the current system and how it could be changed is explored.

Governor Scott proposed in the legislative budget to increase the gross premium tax on insurance companies doing business in North Carolina.

Abstract:
The number one issue in the spring legislative primaries will be the sales tax on food. Although the issue is more pronounced in some counties than others, there is no other one issue of state-wide importance which even approaches it in interest. There is no liberal-conservative division in the food tax controversy, and there is no correlation between the controversial tax and the spirited primaries and election of two years ago.
