North Carolina’s Year for Reform

Becki Gray writing for the *Carolina Journal*:

> The theme for the 2013-14 session likely will be “Economic Recovery and Job Creation.” The leadership’s priority list includes reforming an antiquated tax system, expanding school choice, rolling back government regulations, repealing renewable portfolio standards that drive up the cost of energy, protecting North Carolina’s right-to-work status, enacting regulations to produce natural gas with hydraulic fracturing, and rebuild and protect the state’s infrastructure. Everything else should be considered a distraction.

I am interested to see how many of these items actually get addressed.
