The state will cut 400 million dollars from its budget for the fiscal year and almost half will be cut from education. Meanwhile, the highway construction package will receive zero cuts and will cost 9.2 billion dollars. Money could be shifted from the highway fund to prevent cuts in education which provide a greater return on investment than does building roads. NC legislators are unlikely to do this as lobbying is strong, but cutting education spending will likely hurt the students of NC.
