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."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
