Government Spending

State spending (in thousands of dollars)

State spending (in thousands of dollars)

 

 

 

Did you get a 13.5% raise in the last two years?  Well, the State did.

 The voters of this state have repeatedly demanded the protection of a law that would require a super-majority in the legislature to raise taxes. Taxpayers know that this would force fiscal accountability in our government.  That is why one of my first votes as Senator was to impose the 2/3rds requirement on any Senate bill that has to do with spending.
