We must make our state operate more efficiently by setting spending priorities, measuring performance and demanding accountability for every dollar spent.
I am leading the effort to limit the use of expensive outside consultants and requiring state agencies to report and justify all contracts. I am also committed to more accountability and transparency in our state budget process. Every state agency should be required to set priorities and measure progress toward meeting clearly stated goals. The public should be able to see--on an easy-to-understand website--how tax dollars are being spent and the results of that spending.
