Early this morning, a super majority of the North Carolina House kept a promise to taxpayers that a billion dollars in temporary taxes would expire at the end of this month. With all the cynicism in politics, it is refreshing to see politicians that signed AFP pledges against raising taxes keep that promise.
Voters should have renewed confidence in trusting some elected officials to keep their word. This afternoon the State Senate gave final approval to the North Carolina State Budget by overriding Governor Perdue's Budget Veto. We applaud this historic first-ever veto override vote.
