Sell illegal drugs in state stores.

Sell illegal drugs at state stores. Keep the cost low and the product free of impurities. The drug user could get help while obtaining the drug. The drug user wouldnt need to steal or rob people. The drug user would have a clean safe place to use drugs. Needle exchanges would keep the needles in a safe place. We would save money on law enforcement and confinement. We could provide treatment when the drug users has ...more »

Think Outside the Box

I suggest you start thinking outside the box. Instead of wringing your hands and admitting to the public that you failed to recognize the economic downturn, call a conference of business leaders with the set topic not to cut,cut,cut government services but think of original fund raising ideas to pull us through e.g. sell a small space for advertising to businesses on state license plates or on electronic signs placed ...more »

video tickets

Change the video camera tickets to a funding that goes to the general fund and not to the city's. also it was suppose to be a ticket equal to a parking infraction and go to the registered owner. the most exspensive parking ticket is $45.00 how are the cities getting away with miss managing the cost amounts.

Boaters license

Boating has become so dangerous and alot of people die every year in boating accidents. Alot because there is no enforcement out there. Start a boaters license just like a car. Make your recreation and natural resource officers start doing their jobs in boating. Make them get out there and do their jobs and save lives.

new income sources

If you would charge $1.00 for a car to enter into our parks and natural areas or recreation areas in all three natural resource agencies. You would make billions. Do not do what Wa.

Retirement system

I suggest you...reduce or eliminate early retirement penalty's for those who would like to volunteer at state parks or other agency's,you could install a minimum hours requirement,or have a different requirement for different levels of penalty reduction. Or just install a rule of 85 or 90 for all retirement systems. that would allow the state to build a younger work force witch would save money in wages & benefits

Cut half of government

I suggest you get rid of about half of the government entities you have. Work for minimum wage like you expect the ordinary person to do and have some sort of life style and have Congress work for $1.00 a day for a month and do that for a year. I didn't do the math but that should help a bunch. People in government live high on the hog and require the citizen to cut back on everything. After a time, there is no where ...more »

Help the ones with no voice

I suggest you take money from all your pig projects, lobbyist based programs and put them to use helping the Unemployed, Single Parents, College Students, Disabled, Terminally Ill, and those without enough of a voice to fight these cuts to our programs. I suggest you and your rich folks live for a month in our shoes...I suggest to actually talk to the people at UI offices - that includes here in Spokane, WA (remember ...more »
