The North Carolina General Fund covers two large expenditures, parts of which were to services not provided just a decade ago: state aid and obligations and charitable and correctional institutions. Funds to state aid, which include public welfare, physical care, public employee retirement funds, cultural agencies, and other agencies such as fisheries and civilian defense, were over 11% of the budget for 1951.
