New Proposal

By Curt Bramble
Senate Vice Chair of Executive Appropriations

At this point, it is apparent that we need a fresh plan to address the state’s top priorities:

* Transportation
* Education
* Economic Development
* Tax Reform

We need the plan to provide for a functional, albeit carefully limited, government organization. We have all worked hard to pinpoint and prioritize serious needs in areas like teacher salaries, enrollment growth, public safety, USTAR, loss of federal funds, etc.

A sober budget proposal will address, not abandon, the State’s legitimate needs. The Senate will share a new plan with our colleagues in the House when we’re back together on Monday.

We think this will help us all move closer to agreement.

As always, we appreciate thoughtful public input.
