Alting said he planned to focus on helping the state maintain a balanced budget, protect education funding, permanently cap property taxes and continue job creation efforts.

“We have many exciting opportunities ahead to improve our state,” Alting said. “I look forward to the upcoming session and building upon some of the momentum created in previous sessions.”
