I admit I'm no budget guru here, but, I wonder how much it would help the state's finances if Val Kilmer were to pay his back taxes? (For the record, the taxes he allegedly owes are federal, but there are many others who haven't paid state taxes...)
Or, if the Capitol hallways weren't receiving all new carpeting right now? (Looks nice, by the way.)
Or, if the state actually had a true hiring freeze in place?
Do you have ideas on where the state can save? Want to report wasteful spending? Send them to me for a possible future story.
