The Civitas Institute has posted a summary of the N.C. Senate’s recommended budget for 2010-11. You can check it out here.
Here’s a sample from the overview:
Just one week into the 2010-11 “short” legislative session, the North Carolina State Senate released its recommended budget adjustments for the coming fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget plan was quickly approved by the Senate, and is slated to move to the House for further changes within the next two weeks.
Like Governor Perdue’s recommendations, the Senate spending plan would increase real spending over the tentative appropriations approved in last year’s biennial budget bill. Curiously, however, the Senate would reduce the appropriations for public education and public safety. The Senate plan also includes a sensible tax cut on small businesses that would – unlike Perdue’s proposal – help create jobs in North Carolina.
