Missouri Senate seeks budget-cutting ideas from public
Monday, December 27, 2010
Missouri lawmakers are again seeking ideas from the public for restructuring state government to cut costs.
Last year, the Senate took a rare break from formal floor debates to consider ideas for restructuring state government that were submitted by Missourians.
Republican Senate leader Rob Mayer says he plans to do it again in the first weeks of the annual legislative session that starts next month.
Mayer, of Dexter, says lawmakers need to consider any idea about how to cut spending. Ideas can be submitted anonymously online at a Senate Web page on rebooting state government.
