Gov. Perdue is set to travel to D.C. to beg for more federal dollars to bring back to North Carolina.
Gov. Beverly Perdue is making a quick trip to Washington in her hunt for federal dollars that could improve the state’s jobs picture.
Unfortunately, federal dollars won’t “improve the state’s jobs picture.” As the findings of a report recently released by the Civitas Institute, the federal stimulus package is estimated to cause up to an additional 67,000 job losses in N.C.
Perdue will also be hard-pressed to sell “North Carolina as a good place to do business” in light of North Carolina being the only Southeastern state to raise tax rates on personal income, sales and corporations this year.
