Create a level playing field for competition

State budget needs audits and line-item budgeting
The success of state agencies shouldn't be just about bigger budgets. Success is when the state consistently delivers core service a cost-effective, efficient manner. Without line-item budgeting, it's impossible to know which agencies steward their
resources well, which is why I will fight for accountability and transparency. I will implement and standardize audits and hold each agency accountable for how our tax dollars are spent, just like I have done in the private sector the last 19 years.
