Louisiana is the first thing that jumps to my mind when I hear “Let the locals do it, it’s more efficient than the Feds.”

Is this some sort of pay back for campaign $?

Louisiana is the first thing that jumps to my mind when I hear “Let the locals do it, it’s more efficient than the Feds.”

Well … I’m a former state employee.

And I’ve dealt with the feds (Region VI) as well as DC folks. A slower, I’ve never known.

We got word from the USDA that to keep our fed funds, we had to provide Civil Rights training to all employees, and the training HAD to meet the requirements of USDA. We were given 6 months from the date of the notice to accomplish this, no problem on my end.

I called USDA to see what their requirements for the training were. The requirements were in the process of being written and would not be complete and issued for another EIGHTEEN MONTHS. Keep that in mind when you remember that I had 6 months from the date of notice to give the training to employees, in accordance with their requirements. Sheesh. Talk about impossible!

No evidence of that.
Just the state is short of money, and the Jindal admin. wants to get its hands on $1.5 billion in cash. $500,000,000 of that, of course, is EMPLOYEE MONEY, not the state’s.

I’m so disgusted I could spit.

I’d call this a “Job.”

Well obviously this study doesn’t take into account the massive savings which will be achieved by the free market bidness fairy waving the magic wand of efficiency./
