Over the past five years, our budget has increased by nearly $1 billing dollars each year and our State budget is approaching $18 billion dollars. As our economy strengthens and the tax revenues increase, numerous examples of overspending and waste on unnecessary projects abound in North Carolina. Republican members of the North Carolina legislature have been stifled in their attempts to put limits on spending and to force the legislature to make tough choices and fiscally responsible decisions. We need to put controls in place that make it difficult to increase spending beyond inflation- and growth-driven factors, and we need to eliminate the spending spree mind set of many legislators.
