State Government Leadership Foundation Finding conservative state-based solutions to national issues. http://sglf.org The SGLF is taking the lead on educating elected and appointed state government officials, providing support to local officeholders, and highlighting meaningful, conservative solutions
(10)

Mission: The SGLF firmly believes that good policy will ultimately be realized at the state level. As per usual -- there is grid-lock in Washington, and the Federal government is out of control and accomplishing little to nothing. Contrast this with the states, who are getting things done -- some better than others. America is at its most prosperous and productive when there is limited government, less spending, less taxes, less dictation from Washington, and less encroachment into the states. The SGLF intends to help place public policy back into the hands of our states. That is where we will find leadership and good governance. The SGLF is dedicated to educating policymakers and the public about the benefits of smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budgets, and efficiency in governing.

In Connecticut, Governor Malloy Should Sign the Bipartisan Budget

Connecticut's Democratic Governor is refusing to sign a bipartisan budget agreement which doesn't raise taxes and balances the state budget. Unbelievable!

That’s precisely what the bipartisan budget passed Friday night by state legislat...
