North Carolina’s revenue problem has been a concern of ours since we compiled our 2015 Legislative Agenda back in February of this year. Implementing a TABOR, or a “Taxpayer Bill of Rights”, is part of that concern. And while we didn’t hear much about TABOR earlier this legislative session, SB607 has made quite a splash in recent days. The bill was re-introduced last Thursday (August 06), and then quickly moved to the Senate floor for hurried “debates” and the requisite three votes needed to move it forward, all within in the space of a week. You may have heard of TABOR legislation before; it’s part of a national playbook of those who seem opposed to any government services, and who believe a trickle of money and largess from the most wealthy among us is all that’s needed to build a vibrant, thriving society for all (and that private charity can pick up the slack for those still left on the margins).
