RALEIGH — Legislative Republicans may soon head down a path that always seemed to befuddle their Democratic predecessors.
Assuming that they still control the North Carolina General Assembly in 2013, GOP lawmakers say that they will take a stab at tax reform.
Democrats talked a lot about the same subject for a number of years.
Gov. Beverly Perdue, near the end of her first year in office, called tax reform “a must-do.” Before that, former Gov. Mike Easley created a commission to examine reworking the state’s tax structure.
