For starters:

The outstate State Patrol can be eliminated. Minnesota Counties submitted a plan to the Legislature to do just that but Legislators wouldn't do it. Outstate Troopers don't provide 24 hour coverage, are very costly with management, dispatch, equipment, training, compensation etc...

Many MILLIONS could be saved by eliminating outstate Patrol.

There are numerous agencies and services that are duplicated by the Feds when the States are already doing the same job (e.g., Dept of Education).

However, the problem more often is an issue of the largesse of the government. This is a result of the dysfunction public sector unions. Unless we do away with public sector unions, we will never accomplish the task of bringing anything back under control.

Agreed, a state (DFL) Rep told me the DFL WILL NEVER vote for anything that eliminates any positions in State Government. That pretty much sums up how once a state agency is established it will NEVER go away.

Take the new AIS staffing, those new positions will NEVER go away, ever!

Unions manage the Government, tail waggs dog.
