Brian Schweitzer on Budget & Economy

Democratic MT Governor

 


As governor, cut taxes & built budget surplus

"As governor, I cut more taxes than any governor in history," he says, a nice opening for a presidential pitch. "I built the largest budget surplus on an annual basis for eight consecutive years, larger than any time in the history of Montana, 10 times larger than all through the nineties, and invested more in education. In fact, reformed education. There were several things that we did. We had to take on higher-education administrators, and we had to take on teachers' unions--they didn't agree with us on some of the things that we did--but at the end of the day, during a six-year period, my last six years, Montana increased the percent of our adult population with a college degree at the fastest rate in the country."
