Copy and paste the link:
The "savings" is going to come from sharing engineers and workers which equals unemployment! All they talk about is how we need job creation but are so willing to take steps where people end up losing their jobs. Do not know how they sleep at night.
Stealing from Peter to pay Paul that is the way our govenor works won't be long till the cash cow is gone then what will he do.
I just read Jill Docking's blog ( http://www.dockingblog.com/ ) and sent her an email message ( email@example.com ) of support. If she's willing to run against Sam Brownback, I will contribute to and work for her campaign. I'm a lifelong Democrat and I agree we must create a political alliance with our fellow Democrats, independents, and disaffected moderate Republicans if we are to have any chance of stopping this neo-conservative train wreck from destroying our beautiful state.
Johnston is gone. but first he needs to sue the state for defamation of character for them saying he was trying to bribe state officials. When the hell was a "king" elected? king brownyback is doing everything in his power to destroy what once was the fine state of Kansas.
i am a little bit surprised the governor settled on the amount of $30 million as predicted savings. he could have just as easily chosen $100 million as his predicted savings.
Translation, I am too nice to say anything about the governor's decision, but I expect a pink slip on a Friday in the near future.
He only did this so he could get his hands on the Turnpike's revenue, and make it look like there is more money for roads than actually exists.
Under the guidance of Deb Miller our KDOT was one of the more top notch state agencies..still is despite what the so called leadership is doing. In fact, many of our state employees are efficient and dedicated to the task. The political appointees are mucking up the waters and we suffer from the drought of no servant leadership.
To all of the above. You have no idea what this decision means and no idea whether or not it will be a successful one. But you do sound like a bunch of whiners.
One of the very best roadways in the country, in a few years you will think you a driving on I-70 over in Missouti, bad move there Gov.
just another way for browny to destroy the state of Kansas. say goodby to the best road in several states. not saying kdot are idiots, but their boss is. there will be no money to maintain the road from now on. just another cash grab for browny.
Is their ever any debate on any of these bills or does Brownback just tell them what he wants and they pass it and he signs it into law. What a corrupt government. It will take 50 years to undo what he has done in 3 years. I'm glad that I don't live in kansas anymore but I pity my kids and grandkids. I can't even hardly stand to look at that grin on his face.
Another example of a country founded by geniouses and run by idiots. Anything run by the government sucks. One of the best roads in the country will now become "one of the rest"
This guy is literally destroying our State!
Now the party of smaller government that wants to privatize all the government functions so their buddies can make their kickbacks and profits...now wants to shut down a privatized entity of government operation so...what, who is getting the benefit out of this deal? KTA has been a very successful group in operating the turnpike. Why muddle it up and expand government?
Hooray for dumb decisions!
"On Friday, he said the state may be able to save money by sharing engineers, facilities and making some changes on bonding. He said he was going to form a focus group in the next several weeks to study the issue."
Act first, attempt to understand later.
Seems first rule of Brownback is: If it ain't broke, break it. Then introduce a bill to make it as bad as anything in Texas, Mississippi, Missouri or Oklahoma.
Step one in making the turnpike as bad as the typical road in Missouri. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just another day in Brownbackistan.
