A balanced budget is required by our Constitution and by principles of responsible governance. Over the 2015 to 2017 biennium, we will collect more than $43.7 billion from North Carolina citizens and businesses. In developing a budget, we keep in the forefront of mind that this is their money, not the state's. We must strive for the highest and best use of each dollar spent, or else return those dollars to the hardworking taxpayers who earned them.
