Eddie Rispone on Budget & Economy

 

 


Balance budgets, and build up reserves

As a businessperson, it always it always amazed me, how do we have a balance budget deficit? When state law says we have to have a balanced budget, we cannot have an unbalanced budget. How do you have a surplus when you raise taxes? Because it's the taxpayers' money, it is over-taxation. I'd look at it from a business standpoint, our budgets would be balanced like they supposed to be. And then we would figure out why we have we don't have the reserves inside that budget.

No specifics on budget cuts; try to control spending

Rispone said he would try to control spending. He said the state government wouldn't automatically grow under his leadership, but he also couldn't say what government funding he would cut. He said he's an "outsider" who is not familiar enough with state government to provide those specifics.
