From Skattum's website:
During tough times, all of us have to cut back. But it seems too many of our elected officials are still addicted to the same old “spend-now-pay-later” brand of politics that put us in this mess in the first place.
I’ve been working to change that. I’m forcing Helena to be more frugal and focus on the priorities — like education, law enforcement and roads — while allowing a free people to make their own decisions and allow employers to get our economy back on track.
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Skattum served on these committees:
