Saving Million a Year

‎Monday, ‎16 ‎August, ‎2010 I suggest you change how the state medical pays for incontinent supplies. You could save a lot of money by giving each recipient a card that pays for the incontinent supplies. Let the recipent buy there own at a local store and you will save half or more on the incontinent supplies. My daughter is 12 with a brain injury , I noticed what the state insurance pays and it would be cut in half... more »

travel rates

a moderate rate, straight across the board, for all traveling state employees, including yourself. should a person choose a higher rate for travel rooms or meals it should come out of their own pocket not the pocket of taxpayers.

Lead by example...

I suggest you lead by example to begin with. Madam Governor, I have been asking for an example of what you are doing, for the past few months, to make a sacrifice in these troubled times. You want to get the ball rolling on good ideas? You can begin by leading by example. The state is hurting and you spent $10,000 (of our money) to refinish a table. My car will hit 300,000 miles sometime this month, it's a little rough... more »

Stop the Loopholes in the Education System

Stop ADDITIONAL support for all (illegal) migrant children being educated, they are given the ability to go to school to receive an education not use that as an avenue to house, feed, and support their entire household.. This is ridiculous...

And the department of Ed makes this a loophole to add all these additional items.

Make employees justify their work hours and what they did.

Make state and city workers justify their hours spent at work. I know of city employees that do very little at work and add hours to their time sheets they did not even work. Where are the time clocks? Where is the accountability? Why is there overtime? There is no one that oversees these employees so they can do whatever they want. This starts at the management level and continues down. Look at your seasonal employees... more »

Stop illegals from getting apartments,jobs, bank accounts & allow all drivers to visit Canada.

Do most know that only 3 states do not require proof of citizenship, Washington, New Mexico, and Utah. So here is a simple idea. Make all drivers in WA get a enhanced drivers license, then the state can collect extra fees and we all can visit Canada. It's a win win. Then illegals can't use the ID to take our jobs, have bank accounts using fake social security numbers along with the real WA state drivers license, they... more »

Medical savings account system

Establish a state health savings account system. Make it a viable alternative to the state employee health care systems and make it legal within the state as an alternative to a federal health care system for businesses and individuals. The reason this is a great idea and would be legal within the state is (1) it is not in competition across state lines so the the federal government cannot inhibit or prohibit it (2) it... more »

Update public welfare check system

Update the welfare/WIC/unemployment/social service check systems to a debit style card. This has worked in other states to lower costs and prevent using the checks in lieu of cash. While there is an initial outlay to establish the new system, it prevents the widespread fraud of the old systems which saves the taxpayers money.

saving lots of money how, Right Here

i suggest that instead of giving the police department all these car and gas cards for there personal use that you pair the officers up. Because we all know that when some one gets pulled over they always have a second car show up. and another thing how about we put L.E.D. light in the road ways instead of painting the road every year or two. L.E.D.'s last for up to 10 years and the electricity is right there on the... more »
