Budget

Freeze all current government spending at given levels for a minimum of three years until it can be evaluated properly.  This will allow the state to make the appropriate changes to department structures and regulations and eliminate the hazard of new taxation or increased fees.  To be clear, Washington DOES NOT have a revenue problem—they have a spending problem and that will be my priority on day one.

Budget

As Governor I would strongly encourage the State legislature to pass a Constitutional Amendment to permanently ban the possibility of a State income tax.  This would encourage growth and a business-friendly environment that would attract new businesses and family wage jobs.

Budget

The entire tax code should be fully reviewed, and a clean tax system based upon simple rules should be implemented.  Washingtonians shouldn’t be taxed into poverty and businesses—regardless of size—shouldn’t be forced out of business or to leave to lower tax, lower regulation states.
