Fiscal Responsibility

One of the responsibility of our state legislatures is to ensure the tax dollars paid by the citizens of Oklahoma are spent efficiently and for proper purpose of which those tax dollars are intended. That is why Kevin voted for the first Audit bill, HB2311. Our agencies, boards, authorities and trusts should be audited on a regular basis. There should also be an audit of taxes such as the Lottery Tax so the people know the money is making it to the proper agency and for its intended purpose. Kevin also believes in line item budgets to force transparency in all agencies that require state funding so we know exactly where they plan for the money to go. Kevin would like to see incentive programs for directors of agencies to to encourage cuts in waste, fraud and abuse.
