House Republicans say consolidation may be necessary for school districts, courts, other agencies

Another very effective cost cutting measure would be to reduce the number of legislative districts to 36 and the number of senators to 12 - one for each three house districts. Eliminate all of the associated redundant staffs and office spaces. The next step would be to require that the legislative session not extend beyond 30 session days per year. Our counties and legislatures were established with 19th Century realities - a day's ride to the courthouse.

Let's bring our government into today's realities.
