What are your top three budget priorities for the 2019 Legislative session?

Steven Kling

District 25


Campaign and political ethics and finance reform. A system that allows unlimited campaign contributions is a corrupt one that limits voices and perspectives that are necessary for a balanced and free society. Public education finance reform. Robin Hood is being used as the states piggy bank. Instead of redistributing funds to disadvantaged school districts the State is re-appropriating that money improperly. Our property taxes are 3 highest in nation and we’re 46th in school funding as a result. Force commercial property owners to disclose market values increasing local tax coffers $5B.
