Rainy Day Fund Now!

Today the Governor and the State Treasurer testify in Salem in support of kicker reform for a permanent rainy day fund.  My stance is clear - fiscal volatility is damaging and costly and the state is simply shooting itself in the foot by not addressing it.  This is not a Republican v. Democrat issue, it is common sense.

Though I would prefer a slightly different version of the bill being discussed - particularly not dedicating funds to universities but to education in general and making the fund much bigger - I strongly support it compared to doing nothing at all.
