Six years of experience in the Arkansas legislature taught me one important lesson. While it is great that Arkansas has and complies with our constitutional requirement to balance its budget, Arkansas has developed a system that insures every tax dollar will be spent, regardless of whether or not it's needed. This is why I fought for, and was successful in requiring, 100 million dollars of tobacco settlement money be placed in a trust for future needs. The most effective way to control government growth and spending is by controlling the revenue side of the equation -- taxes. That is why I did not vote for any tax increases in my six years in the Arkansas House and will continue to fight for lower taxes in the Arkansas Senate.
