To control the ever-increasing growth of government, I believe we need a Taxpayer Bill of Rights in North Carolina.

This effort -- on and off and now on again in Colorado -- limits new spending and taxes to a rate equal to the state's increase in population as related to inflation.

Any surplus is either returned to the taxpayer or added to a "rainy day fund" or "budget stabilization fund." It is estimated that a Taxpayer Bill of Rights in North Carolina would have saved $3.5 billion in the FY 2007 NC Budget.

In addition, we should consolidate government programs where possible and find efficiencies that will save taxpayer money.
