We need an economy that works for everyone. Smart tax policy balances income, sales, and property tax revenue. It must be fiscally responsible, fair, and sustainable. We are fortunate to have a budget surplus, and should use it to create more opportunities for our families, communities, and businesses.
I was proud to vote for the immediate end to the food sales tax, and the reduction of property taxes, but I know there are many other ways to help keep our economy growing.
What will I do to create an economy that works for everyone?
