Expanding Our Economy - My 25 years in economic development have taught me that common sense government policies -- a fair and predictable regulatory environment and tax structure -- can attract new investment and jobs to our state.

Controlling Our Border Our current State budgetprovides over $200 million for increased Border Security, but that is not enough. We must encourage the Federal government to fulfill its role in the enforcement of immigration laws. I will work to promote greater use of new technology and development of multi-agency coordination to help stretch our limited funds and increase our effectiveness.
