On the March 15th ballot, voters will have the opportunity to support a $2 billion bond that builds a better North Carolina … for today … and tomorrow. The Connect NC bond commits North Carolina to a sound future, investing in our universities and community colleges, agriculture, state parks, National Guard facilities and water and sewer infrastructure.
It’s been 15 years since the last general obligation bond was authorized to upgrade our state’s infrastructure in 2000. Since then North Carolina has grown by more than 2 million people. It’s time for North Carolina to reinvest in what makes North Carolina great: our community colleges, universities, family farms, state parks, water and sewer, and our National Guard.
Our state leaders have wisely paid down and paid off existing debt. As such, the bond can be issued and paid for without increasing the tax burden on families!
