State legislators getting specific about government reform

Brad Bumsted on proposals to reduce wasteful spending with the legislature, as well as other reforms.

Noted is Sen. Jane Orie’s proposal which would limit “pinstripe patronage” – the awarding of “consulting” work to relatives, friends, and the person managing your farm. Any such contract would require competitive bidding and information be made publicly available. Hmmm, which state ageny might this affect?
