Urge your Representative to reject SB 75!
Can you make a phone call right now to fight SB75?
Senate Bill 75 is on the House floor this week. SB75 would change the state constitution to permanently freeze income tax rates in North Carolina, locking in the tax cuts that began in 2013 and left our state unable to invest in children, families and communities at the level needed.
We can’t afford to let them pass this Constitutional amendment.
Indeed, in order to keep funding vital public services over time, lawmakers will likely raise the sales tax or fees, which will eat into middle class families’ paychecks and financially strand those who are struggling to get by.
There’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to the federal funding that North Carolina receives, and we can’t predict the future. North Carolina’s population and needs may continue to grow, and the next Hurricane Matthew could happen at any time. That’s why it doesn’t make sense to make a permanent change to our state Constitution that will take an important tool away from lawmakers who may need it in the future.
We elect our legislators to make North Carolina a stronger state – not to tie the hands of future lawmakers.
Tell your lawmaker not to limit North Carolina now and in the future.
