Budget

  • We must find creative ways to increase revenue in Montana. Fire seasons aren’t going to get less expensive. The needs of our schools and our public health systems will not lessen. Tax revenue has not kept pace with the growth of our economy, so we can afford to do more.
  • We need common sense tax reform that makes our tax structure more fair for all Montanans.
  • Montana is facing a long-term revenue problem, caused by outmoded tax system that includes tax giveaways to the wealthy and to corporations.
  • I support restructuring our tax system to include a new, higher bracket for high income households and closing corporate tax loopholes.
