Repeal Local Mandates

  • Hundreds of state mandates imposed on cities and towns force up local spending (and force up property taxes too).  For example, local officials’ hands are tied when negotiating labor contracts.
  • Repealing these mandates would drive down local spending levels substantially.
  • The savings could be applied to cuts in state aid – with no impact on local services.
  • This long overdue reform alone would make up for a good portion of the reduction in sales tax revenue if Question 3 passes — with no down side.
  • It would also give local communities, teachers and parents more control over schools and other local government services – making them much better and more responsive to citizens.
  • Save $100s of Millions
