Capitol Report: Common Sense Spending in Our Schools

by State Sen. Brad Lager

There is no single act that guarantees a quality education; and while I do not believe that greater funding automatically translates into a better education, I do believe there is a basic cost associated with securing quality teachers, keeping the buses running, and operating a quality school.  In a world of limited resources, we must look for every opportunity to spend our educational dollars wisely.

Capitol Report: The President’s Irresponsible Budget

by Congressman Sam Graves

A budget is a fiscal blueprint of the future. It is an outline of one’s priorities that tells you what an individual or group considers important, and also what they view as unimportant.

President Obama’s budget proposal for next year – which was delivered late once again, for the fifth time in six years – demonstrates that his priorities remain both higher taxes – to the

Capitol Report: Judicial Accountability

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Capitol Report: Reducing Burdensome Regulations
