Stop enforcing victimless crime laws.

Bike Lanes

I would suggest that we require a license to utilize our many bike lanes. The bicylist would be required to wear the proper helmet and reflective gear just like a motorcyclist. A yearly $25 license and fines for non compliance.

increase work release and home monitoring

The recidivism rate is highest within the first 3 years of release, if we monitor these people more closely we can reduce the chances of them committing a new ...more »

Stricter Litter Fines on WA. State Roads

I suggest you have the police and courts enforce a strict no litter policy on our roads and freeways charge a higher fine and garnish work wages or revoke license if unpaid.

GA and UT roads do not look near as bad as ours do. They enforce this is their states. Use this money to balance the budget.

Require proof of insurance to register a motor vehicle. Impound cars of drivers who are uniinsured. Enforce law to require insurance to register or operate a motor vehicle.

University Police

In this State we have (6) large State Universities. Each University has its own State funded Police Department. Annual cost 25 million or more. Elimination of University Police Departments and contracts with local jurisdictions would probably save one half to one third of those costs.

Reduce incarceration rates to match rest of world

jails and prisons should be for violent offenders only. The U.S. has 5% of the worlds population and 25% of the world's incarcerated. 1 out of 100 people in the U.S. are in jail. We jail at a rate 7 times greater than countries in Europe. What is wrong with us? If we reduced our prison population/incarceration rate to the world's average, we would save an incredible amount of money. And we might even ...more »
