Brunswick County will hurt, but it
won't feel as much pain as some
I neignooring counties snouid the
federal government eliminate
general revenue sharing funds.
That's the general assessment of
the three county commissioners who
returned last Wednesday from a
three-day legislative conference In
Washington. D.C., sponsored by the
National Association of Counties. The
conference included a breakfast
meeting with Congressman Charlie
ivOSc anu a uinner attended by both
President Ronald Reagan and Bob
Dole, majority leader in the U.S.
"The way it stands now it looks like
it (revenue sharing) is a dying
thing," said Chris Chappell, chairman,
who attended the conference
with Commissioners Jim Poole and
Herman Love. County Manager Billy
Carter and Clerk to the Board Regina
White were unable to attend the conference;
both were sick with the flu.
The delegation said Brunswick and
New Hanover counties rely much
less heavily on revenue sharing to
meet their budgets than do Columbus,
Bladen and Robeson counties.

country were expected to adopt
suruiar measures in ineir home communities.
Chappell said his feeling after
hearing Dole was that because of
public support for the program,
revenue sharing would be continued
for another year then eraduallv
Love said that the message at
every meeting they attended was one
of federal cuts in spending.
"We're also going to lose some
benefits we're going to have to fund
in health and social sendees," he
said. "There's no doubt about it.
They're going to be cut."
Reagan's use of his presidential
veto to block a farm credit package
added additional credibility to his
dinner talk pledge, the commissioners

Columbus County's revenue sharing
contribution equals approximately
20 cents of the county's tax rate,
wiiiie in Brunswick Cuuniy a 4.2 ceiiis
lax increase in the tux rate would be
necessary to replace the funds.
A genera! feeling among
Brunswick County commissioners
and others attending the national
conference was that if the federal
government eliminates revenue
sharing, it should also eliminate
some mandated programs.
Also, said Carter, the public feels
that when the federal government
cuts back in spending, that all levels
of government?state and
local?should do likewise.
But, he said, federal cutbacks actually
place additional demands on
local governments, as in funding programs
the federal government requires
them to operate.
Commissioners also discussed the
U.S. 17 bypass around Shallotte with
Congressman Rose. Poole said he
also wanted to look further into the
Environmental Protection Agency's
funding of an offshore incineration
project in New Jersey.
Chappcll said the conference was
excellent and that he wished all coinmiccinnnrc
