N.C. Senate committee endorses sales tax limit

A North Carolina Senate committee Tuesday endorsed a measure that could prevent Mecklenburg County voters from approving a quarter-cent sales tax increase to supplement the pay of local teachers. The measure caps local sales taxes at 2.5 percent – Mecklenburg’s current rate. County commissioners last month had scheduled a November referendum on additional money to help teachers, Central Piedmont Community College, the arts and libraries.
