This weekend on Carolina Journal Radio
Posted by Mitch Kokai at 06:48 AMThe prospects looked dim in the closing days of the legislative session for new state tax credits targeting parents of children with special education needs.
That’s despite the bipartisan support documented in the latest edition of Carolina Journal Radio. You’ll hear comments of support from Sen. Malcolm Graham, D-Mecklenburg, and Rep. Marvin Lucas, D-Cumberland, along with Darrell Allison of Parents for Educational Freedom North Carolina and Leslie Petruk, a parent who could use the credits to help cover costs of services for her elementary school-age son.
Speaking of taxes, the closing months of President Bush’s administration could mark the end of the Bush tax policy. Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board explains why rejection of the Bush tax policy would mean bad news for Americans. You’ll also hear former Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole discuss taxes; that’s one of the highlights of Americans for Prosperity North Carolina’s recent “Take Back Our State” rally. That rally also featured comments from AFP President Tim Phillips.
Jon Ham will join us to discuss the future of the print media, and Paul Chesser will discuss the work of his group, Climate Strategies Watch.
