McCrory Facilities Tour
Governor Pat McCrory is talking about business expansion in the mountains. This morning, the governor visited Altec Industries in Yancey County. He's touring manufacturing companies across the state.
The governor listened to the managers' ideas for growing business and improving the economy. McCrory says tax cuts are key to adding jobs and providing workers more income.
At Altec, he told employees they'll see a 2-percent drop in their North Carolina income tax because of the cuts.
Gov. Pat McCrory, (R) North Carolina, "our policies reward those people who are actually making and producing some things, as opposed to punishing them with taxes, I want to reward them, not punish these hard-working people for the work they do."
McCrory will also visit the Glen Raven plant nearby in Burnsville.
