Phil Fortunato on Budget & Economy

 

 


Partial zero-based budgets; 1/4 of budget every two years

I am proposing that we implement zero-based budgets. That means that instead of just spending more than last time, we start from zero. Agencies will have to demonstrate that their current bloated budgets are necessary, and legislators will be able to actually see the information before they approve the budget. The budget is too big to zero base budget all at once. There would not be enough time to review the entire budget from zero during session, but we could do every biennium (two years).

Open up state to building housing of all kinds

Our state is facing a self-imposed housing crisis. The cost to build has skyrocketed because of excessive regulations, costs of permits and fees and misguided land-use rules. I will implement an aggressive program of opening up our state to build more housing of all kinds. Our goal will be to move people through a continuum, from shelters, to transitional housing, to affordable rentals, with a goal of making home ownership a reality again for those that want it.
