Neighbors on Call’s NC Policy Update for 6/06/22

Economic Policy

  • In a news conference on Thursday NC Senate Democrats advocated for a $200 gas tax rebate using some of the state’s budget surplus. On May 26 Democrats had introduced the Gas Tax Rebate Act, SB 897, which would issue a $200 debit card or check to North Carolina residents over 18 who hold a valid driver’s license. The primary sponsors of the bill are NC Senators Dan Blue (Wake), Sydney Batch (Wake), and Michael Garrett (Guilford). Sen. Phil Berger, Republican leader of the NC Senate, expressed reluctance to support the measure, saying Republicans would prefer longer-term tax cuts.
