We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. In an effort to make it more difficult to raise taxes, the voters enacted I-960, requiring a 2/3rd majority vote in the legislature to raise taxes. While I voted against the legislation that killed I-960, the Democrat controlled legislature this session passed the legislation and the governor signed this bill into law. As a state we need to live within our means. As families and employers are having to tighten their belts, so should state government. And, any new spending proposals need to be paid for from existing revenues.
