Protecting Taxpayers

Government needs to learn to live within its means, just like individual taxpayers must do during tough economic times.

Our state budget process must include accountability measures and results from the entities that continue to ask for more tax dollars. The budget process must prioritize the essential expenditures of government, thereby separating the needs of government from the wants of special interests.

I will continue to oppose any budget that calls for increased taxes, irresponsible spending, and the confiscation of more hard-earned dollars from taxpayers’ pockets.
