“Relying on the Governor’s massive tax increase to cover the $1.6 billion in new spending is irresponsible. The continual cycle of increasing spending on the backs of taxpayers has got to end. A balanced budget is possible without additional taxes. The solution is living within our means and spending within our current revenue levels, not spend more, tax more.”
As Senate Republicans, our goal is to encourage job growth by
developing an efficient, transparent, ethical state government
with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
