February 11, 1963
Mr. President
Mr. Speaker
Members of the General Assembly:
The State Government is practic
ing all of the economy possible
while moving forward the essential
programs of education and service.
The finances of the State have
never been in better condition, the
budget is balanced, and we will
have no serious problems in keep
ing it balanced.
We are getting our money's wor
th. Compared to other states our
taxes are modest. Because of our
unique state wide approach we rank
in the bottom five of the fifty states
in tax expenditures, public debt,
and in the number of public em
ployees.
Even so, we can have a tax redu
ction at this time. To help those who
need it most, I am recommending

This plan was made at the regu

school cafeteria on Thursday night,
February 7. Approximately 40 mem

There was almost a complete

at length.

that you single out for tax relief
the parent with children who must
be educated.
While our North Carolina individ
ual income tax law is basically fair
and sound, the $300 personal exemp
tion for dependents is unrealistic
in the light of present costs.
I recommend that this exemption
be increased to $500.00.
I also recommended that the
newsboys sales tax be replaced for
th ereason it cannot be administer
ed fairly.
We can also afford some relief
to those burdened with the costs
of illness, so I recommended that
prepared medicines be exempt
from the sales tax. We excluded
prescriptions from the tax at the
