Reducing the Size of State Government

Government doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. With this in mind, since Republicans gained a majority in the Mississippi Legislature, we have engaged in a systematic performance based approach to funding government. We have implemented historic tax cuts, reduced spending and reduced the size of state government.  We must continue to transition from a tax system that relies predominately on income and property taxes to one weighted more to consumption taxes which by nature is more fair and inclusive for all Mississippians.
