Doing More With Less?

Since early 2000, Microsoft Corporation has copyrighted a slogan for its software marketing that says "Do More with Less." That line was used by one of KSPN's reports tonight about the Legislature looking at decreasing the number of lawmakers at the Legislature. I saw and heard the House Speaker, who agreed with the proposal saying that this move could provide over hundred thousands of dollars worth of savings to the local government.

Then the Legislature also expressed hopes that the Upper Chamber would implement the same action.

Question, if you were up there would you support this?

This is long overdue. It's good to see a few of our lawmakers supporting the move. It will be an amazing thing if the legislature actually initiates and enacts such a change. I tend to fall on the slightly pessamistic side on this one.. Glen's probably right. It will take a vote by the public.

One potential lawmaker answered a question on that topic at the chamber forum to which he replied, "No, I am not in favor of reducing the size because polical positions, their appointees, and their decisions provice much economic development for locals".

It will take a vote because when push comes to shove, they will support their own system of plunder.
