MTA advocates for sound public fiscal policy and efficient government. Our advocacy efforts are unique in three ways:
- We are not ideologically based. We believe there are good non-partisan principles of public finance and sound economics. MTA frames debates and evaluate policies based on these principles.
- We base positions on facts and research, not predetermined conclusions. We do not reflexively oppose or promote taxes or spending programs but examine whether the supporting tax policy is sound and whether governments are reasonable and efficient in the use of citizensí tax dollars.
- We promote citizen advocacy through education and understanding, not emotion or spin. MTA believes the way to get good policy is to inform citizens, not inflame them.
