Senate Non-Slush Slush Funds Tuesday, Jun 19 2007 

slush.jpg

Below is a list of NON-STATE function amendments proposed by the Senate Finance Committee to the STATE Operating Budget (HB 1, 2007 R.S.).

I’ve attempted, as best I could, to break them down into several categories: 1) The Unknown, 2) Religious entities, 3) Major charities, 4) Civic Clubs 5) Non-governmental entities and finally 6) Local governmental entities.

The funding of major charities and private member-only clubs was a first for me.

Regardless of category or worthiness, none should be funded by STATE tax dollars. They should be funded by either private dollars or with local tax dollars.

I did not include any of the committee’s additions to state agencies.

HB 1 is currently pending approval on the Senate Floor.

The Crack Mullet Research Staff has now taken a look into the other State Boudin Plant. This time it is the Capital Outlay Budget (HB 2, 2007 R.S.) HB 2 has already passed the House and is currently in the Senate Finance Committee pending further larding up.

Below is what was found in the portion of the Capital Budget that funds projects that are NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATE.

The spending is listed in two categories: 1) What appears to be non-government units 2) Local government units by parish.

Borrowing money

Most of these projects are not only funded with your tax dollars, but money is also being borrowed by the state through General Obligation Bonds that must be repaid over decades with interest. This at a time when the state has approaching $4 BILLION in unencumbered funds.

Priorities

Perhaps all these expenditures are worthy projects. However, as you read through them keep in mind that it is YOUR tax dollars that are going to fund projects.

Do these expenditures reflect your priorities or would you prefer a state tax reduction? If you prefer a tax reduction contact your leges and let them know.

Detective 101 Wednesday, May 30 2007 

inspectorclueso.gif
New Orleans has now recorded at least its 81st murder in the first 150 days of the year.

The latest murder was this morning in Algiers.

This was the 7th murder in 6 days We have been warned that violent crime escalates in the summer. Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer and right on cue, the murder rate has risen to over one per day.

Refresher course for the chief

Both Mayor Ray Nagin and NOPD Superintendent Warren Riley, in response to the latest spate of murders, have made references to the problem being violent youths listening to rap music. However, the more recent murders involve middle-age and older victims. The latest being a 60-year old cab driver. The perpetrators and motives for the murders, for the most part, are unknown.

Perhaps Chief Riley needs to take a refresher at the detective school. How does he know the perps are “youths” if they don’t know who committed the murders. Or perhaps the Mayor and Chief simply need to find some better excuses for the fact that neither is capable of doing his respective job of protecting the citizens.

More as it happens.

C.B.
