Legislative Briefing on the NC State Budget
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM (EST)
An Overview of the North Carolina State Budget:
An Economic Forecast and Issues Affecting Our Community
This event is geared toward nonprofit, community and business leaders, as well as local legislators, and will feature speakers from NC Budget & Tax Center, United Way of North Carolina and the NC Justice Center.
The briefing will include important issues in state public policy such as:
• The impacts of current economic conditions on nonprofits and working families
• Updates on key programs that support low- and moderate-income workers and their families
• The state of North Carolina’s budget and projections for recovery
“While some say the recession is over, North Carolina and other states still are projecting large shortfalls in revenues for the next fiscal year to address important budget issues,” said Ron Katz, United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County focus area manager. “Come hear the forecast for what we are facing and how this may impact you.”
Speakers include Jill Cox, government relations and communications director with United Way of North Carolina, Alexandra Sirota, policy analyst with NC Budget and Tax Center, and Louisa Warren, senior policy advocate with the NC Justice Center.
The briefing is cosponsored by Community Foundation of Western North Carolina and League of Women Voters. Those interested in attending or having questions should contact Ron Katz at United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County at 255-0696 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
