Senate leader Phil Berger has announced that fellow Republican Sens. Bob Rucho and Bill Rabon will co-chair the N.C. Senate’s Finance Committee, which is responsible for tax policy.
From Berger’s office:
“Senators Rucho and Rabon are both hard-working legislators whose commitment to balancing the state budget without raising taxes will serve the Finance Committee well,” said Berger. “As the economy continues to recover, their leadership will be instrumental to reforming our antiquated tax system to encourage growth, lure businesses to North Carolina and jumpstart private sector job creation.”
