Every family in America is reviewing their budget, cutting waste and prioritizing spending. I believe government should do the same.
While in the legislature, I listened to the values and concerns of average Coloradans and worked to limit government waste and increased accountability when it comes to our tax payer dollars. That's why I introduced legislation to require an annual report showing the cost and effectiveness of $2 billion in tax credits given each year by the State of Colorado. That information is crucial to help lawmakers and taxpayers make informed decisions about Colorado's future. I also introduced a bill that would limit excessive government spending by state-chartered entities after Colorado's workers' compensation provider spent over $300,000 on a golf outing for board members and their spouses.
Like you, I demand accountability and transparency with our taxpayer dollars because we believe that hard working families shouldn't have to carry a larger burden than someone with a well connected lobbyist.
