Former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey called on Oklahomans on Tuesday to show their support for a ballot initiative that would limit government spending.
The proposed constitutional amendment, often called the Taxpayers Bill of Rights, would stop government from growing at a faster pace than private business, backers say. A limit is needed to bring back fiscal prudence, even in times of surplus, Armey said.
"This is only common sense," he said. "We need to limit growth of government in a rational manner. Spending public money needs discipline."
