In a recent study from the Mercatus Center, looking at just how prepared states are for the next recession, NC ranks 27th.  But keep in mind, they used figures from FY 2105.  Considering NC added another $1 billion into our savings account in this year’s budget, we’re in very good shape heading into future economic challenges.  And a note for 2017 – we need to add even more to our savings.  Fiscally prudent, economically sound.

*move the green bar up another $1 Billion and thank your legislator for smart, responsible leadership.
