Fox News regular Grover Norquist will headline a rally on the lawn behind the Legislative Building on May 16 to promote changes in the state tax code.
Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, is working with Americans for Prosperity in promoting tax changes. His North Carolina trip will include stops in Greensboro, Huntersville and Kings Mountain over several days. The tour is part of AFP's campaign to promote a new tax code that AFP says will "tax less, tax fair, and tax simple."
State Senate leader Phil Berger released a plan Tuesday that puts a sales tax on more goods and services -such as prescription drugs, food, doctors' and lawyers' bills - and gradually cuts personal and corporate income taxes.
Dallas Woodhouse, AFP North Carolina state director, said his group has not yet endorsed the Senate plan, but probably will.
