Taxes, Schools and Executions

Record #:
The article is a round-up of the week's political and legislative actions concerning taxes, schools, and executions. Three tax bills are being debated which are titled the Fair Tax Act, The Lower Tax Rates for Stronger N.C. Economy, and HB998 or the Lewis, all proposing to lower taxes. Opportunity Scholarship Act passed the House and now the bill which proposes to use public funds for private schools will go to the Senate. Lastly the Racial Justice Act, which protects inmates on death row if they can prove the decision was made based on race, continues to be gutted by conservative Republicans with more changes scheduled for approval soon.
