Our Plan for Real Tax Relief


  • Require voter approval before the state is permitted to borrow money.
  • Require the state to spend or base a budget upon recurring revenues — in other words, don’t spend what you don’t have.
  • Cap government spending by law and audit every state department and agency to root-out unnecessary spending.
  • Constitutionally ban funds dedicated for one purpose from being raided for other uses.
  • Create a “Rainy Day” fund to offset large tax increases in bad economic times – in other words,don’t spend every dollar; save for the future.
  • Replace the costly and unnecessary printing of official reports and other documents by making the information available online.
  • Reduce the number of government vehicles by ten percent a year over the next five years.
  • Use the state contracting authority to more competitively purchase goods and services at a lower cost to taxpayers.
  • Eliminate the stipend paid to prisoners for performing duties such as road cleanup, etc.
