Efficient Government Agencies

A method to cut government spending where bureaucrats will WANT to cut!

It is a well known and quite understandable reaction of any bureau to make sure that the current year’s budget has been spent by the end of the fiscal year, even on unnecessary projects, else they lose it. Personal interest should have every employee watching for any possible waste of the taxpayer’s dollars.

A new budgeting policy for each bureau should be established, where any unspent budgeted funds at the end of the fiscal year shall be equally divided up and paid out to all of the employees in that bureau. Then the lower budget figure, pre-disbursement, would be used for the next fiscal year, with, again, any unspent surplus being distributed to the employees who made the surplus possible.

No money would be saved the first year, but from then on every department would have continuously lowering budgets. Could the cost of running the state be cut in half in three years? I think so. The bottom line would be far more efficient and less costly state services.

(Idea from Wayne Green)

MILWAUKEE — Republican supporters made their way into Milwaukee’s Serb Hall Friday evening, April 1st. The Republican party event is designed to spotlight the GOP presidential candidate — although only two of the three were there.

750 people attended the annual dinner, along with candidates John Kasich and Ted Cruz. Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin was also there — she served as the stand-in for Donald Trump, who she endorsed earlier in the campaign.
