Sensible Example Of Way For States To Save Money

From the Associated Press, "Conn. dropping car window registration stickers" in The Journal News:
Connecticut officials say the state will save about $800,000 yearly when it discontinues front window car registration stickers and makes other changes.

State Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Robert Ward says the stickers are unnecessary now that troopers can instantly check a vehicle's registration status electronically.
If only all the states looked at all departments and services for ways to improve productivity, increase efficiency and reduce unnecessary requirements before they sought tax increases. We probably could lower taxes and still maintain the same level of services.
