Dear Legislators,

With special interests seeking to create new programs and grow old ones, I urge you to reject their calls to exceed the current spending limit. There is no need for state government spending to exceed the limit -- under population growth and inflation -- set by the Legislative Budget Board in January.

This is just like the debt-ceiling votes in Washington: don't do it.

As your constituent and a taxpayer, I urge you to vote against any effort to "bust" the cap. Further, I urge you to support legislation that makes the state's spending limits even stronger so that future legislators won't be able to overspend.
