What You Need to Know About North Carolina for May 12, 2015

What You Need to Know About North Carolina for May 12, 2015

In the past couple of weeks, we highlighted a story here about how the state of North Carolina has a $400 million budget surplus, even with tax cuts and the suspension of tax credits. In fact, those credits came at the expense of many in the middle tax bracket, as this Charlotte Observer editorial reminds us.

Sigh. Anyway, that reminds me, it’s Tuesday, another workday for many and another day with plenty of news to share, that you need to know:

Speaking of funding state services, the State Farm ads on the sides of the yellow motorist assistance trucks provided by the DOT, aren’t providing the state with quite enough money and may cause  confusion for motorists.

What inter-regional rail and bus service could look like in Raleigh and Wake County.

This eastern North Carolina graveyard could be moved so a Walmart can be built on the land.

State officials are pointing fingers at each other for not getting the Volvo plant.

Social service departments statewide might not be doing enough to help clients register to vote.

Wake County Schools released a 73-step plan for what it calls equitable discipline on Monday.

And finally, a new ferry boat could be coming to the Outer Banks, to help increase tourism to the area.
