From JLF’s Joe Coletti: Gov. Cooper’s Latest Budget Plan No More Realistic Than Others He Has Proposed

In last week’s press release, JLF’s Fiscal Policy Senior Fellow Joe Coletti highlights concerns with Gov. Cooper’s budget plans:

Of Particular Concern For Parents, State Employees, and Taxpayers

1. Gov. Cooper would close the door on Opportunity Scholarships that help low-income parents find better education alternatives.
2. Gov. Cooper fails to put aside enough money for unfunded state government retiree health benefits.
3. Gov. Cooper’s budget would add $288 million in new state debt without a vote of the people.

Coletti will offer more detailed budget analysis for the John Locke Foundation’s blog, “The Locker Room,” at lockerroom.johnlocke.org. Follow @JohnLockeNC on Twitter for the latest updates.
