Finally, my bill to reduce government waste received a public hearing by the Senate Committee on Government Operations.
Under current law, each legislative office is automatically given hundreds of Blue Books and state highway maps. I distribute all of my allotment, but many other legislative offices do not. That leaves mountains of Blue Books and highway maps destined for the landfills.
This is a terrible waste of tax dollars and landfill space. Senate lead author Dan Feyen kicked off the testimony, and I concluded with brief remarks.
