“Former U.S. House Leader Promotes State TABOR Measure”
Former U-S House Majority Leader Dick Armey today threw his support behind a so-called taxpayer bill of rights initiative petition that has been challenged by some of Oklahoma's most prominent business leaders.
Under the taxpayer bill of rights, state government spending is limited to increases in population and inflation. Critics say the plan would severely reduce education funding and slash vital state services.
But Armey says the measure will limit government growth and impose spending constraints that would force lawmakers to make better choices. He says the government that governs least governs best.
The Texas Republican is now the chairman of FreedomWorks -- a coalition of organizations that supports lower taxes and less government.
Oklahoma's taxpayer bill of rights initiative is pending in the state Supreme Court.
