STATE REVENUE COLLECTIONS UP

Paul Fogleman,

Collections reported by the N.C. Department of Revenue were up 6 percent over budget estimates. New revenue measures approved in the last session of the General Assembly are help fill the state coffers. Most of the money will go to raises for teachers and expanding the Medicaid rolls. Most of the money is generated by expansion of sales tax assessments to services and new fees assessed by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
