Olympia has a spending problem. Even in these tough times, the state revenue for the 2011-2013 biennium is projected to grow approximately 14%. This means that the State of Washington is receiving about 4 billion MORE dollars in the current biennium than was collected for 2009-2011. Despite that increase, Washington is facing a significant shortfall -- once again the State has over-spent. We need spending reform. Spending should be prioritized eliminating some programs and consolidating the same or similar activities from different agencies. Ronald Reagan once said that the closest thing to eternal life on earth is a government program. This has to change -- the taxpayer can no longer sustain the burden of continued government growth.
