Jim will work to preserve the pro-business climate in the state. He will oppose any and all attempts to impose an income tax in the state, corporate or individual. He is also opposed to a raise in the general state sales tax. He will work to maintain the property tax limitation that now governs the potential rise in property taxes each year. With gasoline prices above $4 per gallon, Jim will seek to squeeze government spending before hard working families are asked to give up more of their money.
