While it is unclear whether Wright would have the authority to veto a budgetary decision of the Legislature by refusing to sign his name on the actual borrowing, he is promising to try, and in general, to inject the treasurer’s office into more state budget and policy issues.
While it is unclear? Republican Wright’s “cash cop” campaign for State Treasurer is built on a threat to violate state law, and to act illegally in areas where he has no authority whatsoever. Even he acknowledges that if he tries to do any of this it will lead to lawsuits.
No responsible newspaper would print this nonsense.
