Abstract:
North Carolina’s General Assembly recently approved an 8.8 billion dollar highway project while slashing the state’s Basic Education Program by 40 percent. NC has one of the worst education systems in the nation highlighted by the Newsweek article “Tar Heel Dunce Cap.” Citizens were willing to accept an increase in taxes for “higher teacher pay and better schools,” but the new gasoline tax will go to fund the highway system. Many are criticizing the state government for neglecting students to add what is already the nation’s largest state highway system.

Abstract:
Governor Beverly Perdue has released a budget proposal which would cut the corrections budget. As a result, programs such as Harriet’s House would be eliminated. Women who are released from prison may receive help from Harriet’s House which provides women and their children with housing and other basics so the women can readjust to life outside of prison. Former inmates Mae Stephens and Jenee Williams share their stories of how Harriet’s House helped once they left prison and prevented them from relapsing. Budget details, similar programs that will be cut, and the effects of cutting programs are detailed.

Abstract:
The North Carolina Budget Bureau found that the largest unencumbered surplus since 1948 will carry over for the new fiscal year starting July 1, 1951. Although the General Fund spent over $150,000,000 for general administration, education institutions, charitable and correctional institutions, state aid, pensions, and contingencies, the state also saw revenues from taxes totaling over $176,000,000. This leaves the state with a credit balance of over $17,000,000 for the next fiscal year.
