Abstract:
There are several bills and referendums being shown through North Carolina General Assembly during this legislative session. As part of the Revenue Bill review, a decision on a tax on wine has been postponed, while a new emergency war bonus may be provided monthly if available. The Post-War Reserve Fund is being built up to a mandatory $20,000,000, while the referendum on the sale of alcoholic beverages has been declared dead for the session. In addition to the question of how much funds are to be given for schools, educational districts and a business manager are expected to be installed. Little has been done to move forward with the Medical Care, Medical School and Hospitalization Program since a report was delivered on the State's needs last session.
