Brad Little on Budget & Economy

 

 


$126 million for highways; $80 million for transportation

My plan invests $126 million in state and local highway infrastructure projects and makes targeted investments in safe routes to schools, rail infrastructure, and community airports. I am also proposing $80 million dollars in new ongoing transportation funding. A dependable transportation system is fundamental to commerce. In Idaho, we grow and process most of our commodities, and getting those products down the road in a timely fashion is critical.

Look for too much spending on autopilot

As we review our state budget-we must ask key questions: Is there too much spending on autopilot? Are we putting off maintenance that will cost our children more tomorrow? Do we have adequate rainy-day funds? How do we structure the surplus eliminator?

These measures and my proposed budget ensure we avoid the short-term fiscal mistakes that other states and the federal government continue to make.

Come out Great Recession with budget balanced

As a native Idahoan, 3rd generation rancher and businessman, Lt. Gov. Little knows more about Washington County than Washington DC. Brad and his wife have a deep respect for the traditions and values that help define us as Idahoans. Now Brad wants to work for you as Idaho's next Governor.

Idaho came out of the Great Recession with our budget balanced, our priorities straight and our people poised to lead the nation in job growth and economic opportunity. We've done well but we can do even better.
