Issues


Brecheen on state priorities

Anderson outlined four issues important to his campaign on his site:

Get Small Businesses Moving Again

Excerpt:"I will work to cut taxes on small businesses that create jobs and are the backbone of the Texas economy."

Cut Wasteful Government Spending

Excerpt:"The State of Texas already collects enough money in the form of taxes, tolls, and user fees. I will fight to implement spending controls and stop the reallocation of money from specified uses."

Eliminate Unfunded Mandates on Education

Excerpt:"I strongly believe that LOCAL districts should be in control of their administration, faculty, programs, and students. Local school districts should have more control and fewer unfunded mandates."

Balance the Budget without Increasing Taxes

Excerpt:"I believe the government should be like everyone else and live within a defined budget. There should be transparency in government spending, and if revenues are down, then budget cuts must be considered."
