Raleigh, N.C. — Speaking Wednesday to about 500 municipal leaders from across the state, Gov. Pat McCrory said he's working on big changes for the Tar Heel state and several major areas of government in an effort to market North Carolina for business.
Among the plans, he said, are changes, outside of the box in some ways, to the Department of Transportation. He hinted that they have to do with connectivity of commerce and trade through the needed infrastructure of road, rails, ports and airports.
McCrory promised another major announcement on tax reform, saying the state is not competitive with income and corporate tax right now.
McCrory also said he's in talks with a major CEO who is considering a move to North Carolina but that the state doesn't currently have the kind of workers needed for the company.
That's why, he said, changes to education are also expected.
McCrory, however, did not provide any details of the announcements, saying they will be released in the coming weeks and months.
