Illegal vehicle registration

I live in Vancouver. I have noticed an increasing number of Vancouver, WA residents (& surrounding area) sporting Oregon license plates. Some of these individuals live in my apartment complex. One person that lived here actually had an Oregon drivers license with her WA address. Oregon says they do not issue licenses to WA residents but that is not true. There is not adequate policing of these processes in Oregon. ...more »

Red Light cameras

The state if it is going to keep thse cameras up at city intersections- should get some, or all of the ticket fees charged not the local cities.

IF the state took that chump change, you bet it would help pay down the debt ...more »

Privatized pay parking for state parking lots

I'd like to suggest that the state get out of the parking lot business, and turn all these huge concrete slabs from a cost center to a money maker. They should contract all government building parking lots, garages and transit park and rides out to private companies who can manage and maintain them for a share of the parking revenue. The people using these gray parking lots should be paying user fees - just like the ...more »

Saving money and waste

All agencies should stop providing disposable items that are used for food. Employees should be required to bring their own dishes, utensils, etc. whether reusable or disposable. State agencies that have institutions like WSH, SCC (DSHS), and prisons (DOC) should look into buying ALL reusable serving trays instead of throwing away thousands of dollars a month on disposable cups, lids, utensils, plates, etc. since EVERYTHING ...more »
