I believe the state should have a balanced budget and believe “We The People” should mandate this via a constitutional amendment. A family or household does not get to operate or survive at a deficit; eventually they have to pay back loans and credit cards. The State is no different. We need a predictable, affordable and sustainable budget and budget process. Each and every bill should have a cost analysis attached to it. We need to know the cost of legislation before we enact it. Oil is a fixed asset, not a revenue stream we need to have controls on our budget in place in anticipation of the time when oil will no longer be flowing.
