Sid Salter: Frierson giving just the facts on MAEP funding

The notion Frierson has singled out Initiative 42 by using scare tactics to warn voters about the possible fiscal impact of their public policy decisions is one not borne out by the facts. Frierson has a track record of gathering facts and offering voters hard choices….

…What Frierson is honestly saying to voters is that when the Legislature commits to “fully” fund any one single facet of state government — no matter how important that facet might be — there are real and undeniable fiscal consequences to every other facet of government. That is, unless one assumes an endless and ever-increasing flow of revenue — which Frierson decidedly does not.
