Spending is the greatest problem we have in government today. When the economy grows, so does any government's ability to spend. Good economic times almost always result in increased spending. We must be disciplined when tempted to fund new programs or increase funding to existing programs. We must keep in mind programs created during a good economy will continue into a declining economy and recognize the financial burden of sustaining them.

We must always ask ourselves whether any new proposal is a basic function of state government and could the service be better provided by another source. Government should not compete with private industry.
