Bad news for NC budget writers today.
First, Tax Collections Slowing.
Now, Feds withhold $175 million from state. (BTW, how old is that picture of Dan Gerlach? Seriously, is that his high school yearbook picture?)
The Federal government has so little faith in NC to administer the mental health program that they are withholding Medicare and Medicaid funds. Yikes.
Maybe the session will be a little more interesting than the borefest everyone is predicting.
