Paying a dollar for every signature? At the very least this is unethical, likely it's also illegal. More deplorable deportment from a state senator.

Yup, it's better to pay $10.00 to a corrupt government than $1.00 to an individual for every pair of signatures that he/she gathers..................

We get taxed directly and indirectly every way we turn. If the tax goes up on any product or company we pay it and don't even know it when the price goes up to cover that tax.
We pay wastewater on our utility bill, now we pay for the rain that falls on our roof. But if we want to save that rain to water our own garden we can't even run it into a rain barrel for later use - It's illegal, so we are forced to pay to let it run into the Stormwater system when they won't let us keep it. They will raise prices when we use less water because they wanted us to conserve. It's a good thing corporations don't run like the government or they would all be in jail.

I'd like to see the statute that says, "Rainwater collection for individual use is illegal."
