Keepers of the Public Purse

As North Carolina lawmakers finalize significant changes to the state’s tax code, North Carolina State Treasurer Janet Cowell is preparing to balance the books and account for the anticipated decline in revenue after tax cuts. Cowell’s counterpart in South Carolina,  State Treasurer Curtis Loftis has his own challenges, including the continued uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act and its implications for government employees and contractors. On this program, the CFO’s of both states discuss their roles in keeping the public purse, managing risk in public pensions and the importance of recruiting others to a life of public service.
