An Investor’s Business Daily editorial cited John Locke Foundation President John Hood‘s recent analysis of the economic impact in North Carolina of the end of extended federal unemployment benefits one year ago. An article in the Charlotte Observer and News & Observer quoted Hood discussing the conclusion of most business in this year’s legislative session. N.C. Senate Republicans promoted in their daily press email Hood’s columns on the November elections, the need to rebuild state budget reserves, and the use of grants rather than tax credits for incentive programs.
