The offices of both Gov. Pat McCrory and House Speaker Thom Tillis issued statements in response to the Senate tax reform plan introduced earlier today in a press conference.
“We look forward to reviewing Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger’s proposal and getting more details as we all work to improve our outdated tax system,” said Governor McCrory. “A number of tax bills have already been filed and we anticipate more to come. We will review the strengths of each proposal and work to reach consensus on a plan that will make our state more competitive for job creation.”
And Tillis’ take:
“I applaud the work of Sen. Berger, Sen. Rucho, and other leaders in the North Carolina Senate in developing the plan that was previewed today. Their proposal is a positive first step in our critical discussion about how to reform North Carolina’s tax structure and move our state toward a more stable economy. I look forward to working with Gov. McCrory and the Senate to reach a consensus plan that moves our state to an economically sustainable tax system and promotes job creation.”
