Does NC Have a Priorities Problem?

From North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law’s Corporate Welfare Weekly:

Gene Nichol, professor of law and director of the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity at UNC-Chapel Hill lists a few more priority lapses suffered by the state:

“When you ax thousands of public school teachers, dramatically cut Smart Start and More at Four and then hand over a potential $46 million to a giant computer company, you’ve got a priorities problem.”

“When you create tax loopholes for NASCAR as hundreds of Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina partnered are deluged with clients they can’t possibly serve, you’ve got a priorities problem.”

“When you subsidize drug companies and local pharmacists by tens of millions of dollars a year, thereby limiting the effective coverage of both state employees and Medicaid recipients, you’ve got a priorities problem.”
