Together NC: Addressing the State Budget Crisis
Please join us for a presentation and discussion on the economy, the state budget, and how we can and must work together to promote responsible fiscal policy moving forward.
As you all know, the last couple of years have been tough. The recession and the resulting budget cuts have caused very real pain for tens of thousands of people across North Carolina. Unfortunately, we’re not out of the woods yet. In 2011, the state faces yet another deep budget shortfall.
Experts from the NC Budget and Tax Center and the Covenant with NC’s Children will:
· Provide a forecast for the 2011-13 state budget;
· Summarize the impacts of previous years’ budget cuts;
· Discuss the range of solutions for addressing persistent state budget shortfalls.
We’ll conclude the meeting with a discussion of what non-profits and service providers can do to have a positive impact on the state budget.
