Podcast: Governor Burgum Says He’s Out to “Change the Budget Process Itself”

Governor Doug Burgum and state Rep. Tom Beadle both joined Rob today to talk about the budget guidelines for the 2019 legislative session.

“It just wasn’t a fully sustainable model,” Beadle said of spending in previous, boom-era legislative sessions.

Burugm, meanwhile, says he’s out to “change the budget process itself.”

“We don’t have a revenue problem, we’ve got a spending problem,” he said, adding that he’s pushing toward “zero based budgeting.”

I also talked about the protests targeting Starbucks.
