Do you support the constitutional amendment to allow public money to be spent on private preschool? Why?

Public money should not be spent if this is in effect a voucher program. There needs to be a comprehensive proposal that specifies the scope of services and long-term costs. The Legislature should re-examine continuing and expanding current state-sponsored preschool programs in lieu of creating a new one.

What is your one big idea?

Initiating a zero-based budgeting pilot program that the Legislature can use to analyze all expenditures within a particular state agency.
