As president, Niederhauser is focusing on four goals — increasing government transparency, encouraging departments to work together more effectively, developing a budgeting process tied to the outcome of various programs, and thinking about issues long-term.
"I want to see us less reactive," Niederhauser says. "Where are we headed on transportation? What’s public ed going to look like in 10 years? Let’s start moving toward that now and stop passing bills that distract us from that objective."
His other goal is to wrap up the session early — by 6 p.m. on the last night, so he can go night skiing.
