Fiscal Responsibility

A fiscally prudent Governor who proposed balanced budgets, Jeanne is now a U.S. Senator who is working to eliminate government waste.

She is the leading proponent of strengthening the authority and reach of Inspectors General at federal agencies. She is leading bipartisan efforts to reform or eliminate wasteful agriculture spending, including subsides for the sugar program and crop insurance, and the catfish inspection program. She succeeded in eliminating government spending on oil portraits for politicians. Jeanne is the leading cosponsor of bipartisan legislation to reform Washington’s broken budget system by implementing a two-year budgeting system, like New Hampshire’s, to improve oversight, cut wasteful spending and reduce manufactured budget crises.
