What do you hope to accomplish in the 2018 session?
Probably the main thing I’m really interested in is House Bill 1400, which is basically setting up kind of a state trust fund or endowment. I’ve dubbed it the Vision Fund, and basically the idea would be to set aside some of the gross production tax, and perhaps some of the cash carryover that we have from time to time. Basically, you set it aside into an endowment, and use some part of the funds to go back into the general revenue fund.
What do you hope the Legislature will accomplish?
There are so many things that really need to be addressed. It would be nice if we’d get our budget on a more stable path; finally getting a teacher pay raise would be great, and ultimately just coming together and working out differences, and getting the state on a better path than we all found it. Those are some broad concepts.
