Budget

I strongly believe in reducing taxes and making Kentucky more accountable and business-friendly. We must pass a State budget on time, one that doesn’t raise any new taxes.Since I have been in office, I have worked to cut state government spending, and today, state borrowing is at its lowest level in decades. I protected Medicade funding in the State budget, and I made sure there was no reduction for local students who are part of the KEES College Program.I have stood up to both parties and opposed new taxes that were going to be placed on farmers. I remain committed to cutting taxes and making government more accountable.
