“North Carolina provides us a clear example of the constructive effects of pro-growth tax reform and budget prioritization,” Congress learned last week. As Congress considers how to reform the federal tax code, Jonathan Williams, the chief economist and vice president of the Center for State Fiscal Reform at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC),  told members of the House Ways and Means Committee about the positive effects of North Carolina’s spending and tax changes since 2011. Williams provided some of the economic and fiscal highlights of recent years before concluding, “North Carolina serves as a textbook example of what pro-growth tax and budget reform can do for an economy.”
