- Federal government bailouts have driven our national debt to unsustainable levels. Our nation must reign in deficit spending at the federal level. I will protect the Arkansas balanced budget law and encourage the federal government to adopt the same standard.
- I will introduce legislation in the Arkansas Senate to provide tax incentives for small business owners and corporations to create new jobs in our state. We have seen many industries close their operations in our state and nation and move to Mexico or other third world countries. By lowering taxes on small business owners and other companies, we can rebuild a solid base of industry in our state and attract new companies to Arkansas.
- I commit to work with local Chamber of Commerce organizations and Economic Development organizations within Senate District 18 to attract, develop and retain new businesses and industrial development in our communities. As your state senator, I pledge to build relationships with public and private organizations that will enhance economic development in our district.
