As I See It

March 17th, 2015

We have reached the halfway point of this session. I am fascinated by our process and am so pleased to be here. In the Appropriations Committee we are in the process of hearing from agencies and bills asking for money. I am astonished by the number of requests. Many are deserving of support but there is only so much money available.

Our big job will begin soon as we sort through all the requests. We will make tough decisions of which to fund and which will go no further.

As to floor debate, I have learned one big lesson: it is easier to pass a law than to change or repeal one. We need to be certain any law we pass is one we can live with “forever.”

Thank you for giving me the privilege of serving you. Everyone, have a great St. Patrick’s Day!
