Unfunded Mandates and Balanced Budgets

Nancy is opposed to the idea of the federal or state government handing down directives to local entities which require some form of revenue expenditure without providing the necessary funding to offset the cost. While very often unintentional, these unfunded mandates often force the hand of local entities to raise taxes on local residents to cover their costs. Unfortunately, this practice is all-too-common, but it must be stopped.

Nancy believes we must create conservative and balanced budgets that invest in priorities, cut waste, and reduce taxes.
