As a life-long Republican, I believe in the principles of our Founding Fathers, that all Americans should have "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." I have a 100% rating from the Oklahoma Constitution's Conservative Index.
As a Legislator, I have opposed tax increases (SJR 52) and have worked to make sure that your money is in your pocket, not in the pocket of the government. One of my goals is to make sure that the private sector grows faster than the public sector -- through an interim study, I have continued work to see that the growth of Oklahoma's government is limited. I have supported legislation sponsored by the Heritage Foundation in order to prevent mandates from the federal government from taking effect.
