Governor Perry in Lubbock pushing campaign objectives


LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Governor Rick Perry made a stop in Lubbock on Wednesday to push his campaign objectives.

He proposed two State Constitutional Amendments. One would require a two-thirds vote of legislature to raise any taxes, making it more difficult to do so. The second amendment would require the legislature to ensure spending growth does not exceed the rate of inflation plus the rate of population increase.

He also proposed a State Office of Inspector General to Investigate any fraud or abuse in state agencies.

"It is time, I think, to take specific steps to guard that trust, specifically when it comes to your tax dollars," says Perry.

If elected, Perry would push these policies in the 2011 Legislative session.
