A radical approach to budget reform 9 March, 2009

Posted by David Anderson in Budget, State.

The state is still facing an economic crisis which is driving a budget crisis.  Governor Markell has inherited a mess.   Even worse than the budget short fall driven by economy, there has been a structural problem regarding in state government.  We have seen hundreds of millions of dollars in potential savings ignored.  I believe that with proper reforms we can save 200 to 250 million dollars.

What if state government started its budget process with three questions.  What needs to be done?  What benefits more than it costs when it is done?  What can be done better and at a lower cost?

Do you think something may change?  Let’s take a collection and offer anyone on joint finance campaign contributions if they start every hearing with three questions of that nature between now and 2010.
