Massachusetts State Senate Terese Murray indeed maybe born again and is trying to show sincerity in the War for Government Accountability .....We hope so and time will tell.....We applaud her new efforts if carried out as she appears to taking strong reform positions.....
Senate President Murray called last week to advance Performance Based Budgeting that could do away with maintenance budgeting that will lead to 0 based budgeting. This would start budgeting from the bottom up instead top down leading to focus on needs or accomplishments instead of the current failed system of just looking at what the budget was last year and add to it.
Needs, successes, and failures of Agency Expenditures could be properly evaluated to insure missions are completed and transparency to the legislature and taxpayers is assured. Inefficiencies, waste, and mismanagement of tax dollars could be readily identified and targeted.
