Warner wants to see the state save more money during good times and react faster during the bad times.
The governor says the state should reforecast revenues at the first signs of a declining tax base.

"you can hear the gravel under the feet as you peruse the briallance of those magical foundations which have spoken with their own voice."
After an ititial round of prospoals were universely panned, the design requirements were altered to cut the amount of office space almost in half. beyond that...This time, all plans included a hotel, a mall and a memorial. Four of the new design proposals would create the tallest building in the world.

"they are deliberately set out to be twin towers to replace the ones we lost."
