Because Business is Good With Money!

Hey, did you see how Governor Butch Otter in Idaho wants to teach his department heads to cut costs?

Otter has ordered the Idaho Transportation Department to immediately cut its administrative expenses by 6 percent. Because the department receives no state general funds, it wasn't subject to Otter's recent midyear cuts in the state budget. The governor also wants a group of business leaders to advise the department on efficiency, and he is looking for savings pursuant to a legislative audit that's soon to be completed.
This is clearly a great idea, because there's no recent news that would suggest that trusting our business leaders with large sums of money would be anything less than a great idea.
