The Governor's Priorities

The Governor's Priorities

"The time has come to break decisively with that past. That is why I ran for governor, and that is how I intend to lead during this legislative session. To do so requires three steps. First we must set clear priorities - a clear vision of where we want our state to be in the future. Second, we must overhaul state government to deliver on those priorities. Third, we must stay the course by developing a ten year reinvestment plan - a clear strategy to guide how we will invest new revenues that become available in the future in a way that will continue to move us toward our goal."
