North Carolina’s Taxpayers Deserve a Say in How Their Hard-Earned Money is Spent

NC Senate Should Pass SB 717

(Raleigh, NC) – Today, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative, voiced their support for North Carolina’s SB 717, otherwise known as the Taxpayer Bill of Rights. SB 717 is a constitutional amendment under consideration in North Carolina’s legislature that would place limits on state spending and require that tax increases go before a vote of the people.

AFP-NC State Director Chris McCoy released the following statement:

Now more than ever, North Carolina families want a say in how and when their hard-earned tax dollars are spent. With SB 717, our lawmakers will do just that by giving taxpayers a greater voice in the process and ensuring their tax dollars go to what matters most. Our activists across the Tar Heel State are excited to support the Taxpayer Bill of Rights and look forward to spreading the word across their communities.” 

LIBRE-NC Grassroots Engagement Director Richard Bethencourt released the following statement:

“Latinos across the state of North Carolina have made it clear that they should have a voice in how their hard-earned tax-dollars are spent. Our community has prospered from the economic progress North Carolina has made over the past decade and is committed to holding the government accountable so we can continue on this positive path forward.”
