Tuesday wrap: Is 'April surprise' coming?
Posted April 23, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — Tax collections are ahead of projections, but state lawmakers still awaiting possible "April surprise."
Barry Boardman, the General Assembly's top staff economist, told lawmakers that North Carolina's economy is steadily improving and key April 15 government revenue figures are expected soon. Sometimes, however, those figures don't match with rosy expectations.
Meanwhile, the Senate passed a bill that gives governments in a handful of counties the option of skipping legal notices in their local newspapers and posting information about meetings on government websites.
