Montana’s state budget has often grown faster than taxpayers’ ability to pay for it over the last 16 years.
In fact, taxpayers are on the hook for a whopping cumulative $14 billion more than if the budget had grown on pace with Montana’s economy. All thanks to uncontrolled state spending growth.
A Conservative Montana Budget would put a maximum limit on spending growth based on taxpayers’ ability to fund it – instead of how much a politician wants to spend.
Placing limits on government growth will give Montanans more opportunities to flourish.
