As the demands and responsibilities placed on government become greater and greater, the need for efficiency in programs and services calls for equal attention.
So I’m looking forward to the renewed state Senate effort in the year ahead to uncover waste, inefficiency and mismanagement throughout the state bureaucracy.
Government spending, after all, is New York’s number one reform challenge. If we can’t get our own house in order, we can’t cut taxes for working families, create a better business climate for employers to create jobs, or do the thousand other things it takes to turn this state around.
It all starts with getting government spending under control.
