Cheri Bustos (D-IL) held two budget events in her Western Illinois district on Tuesday. The events, in which constituents pick their priorities for spending, are designed to support the argument that government needs more revenue. Beyond that, however, Bustos used the event to say how ‘pleased’ she was to vote for the Paul Ryan-Patty Murray budget that increases spending, raises user fees and cuts veterans’ pensions.” url=”http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/12/18/Dem-Rep-Cheri-Bustos-Budget-That-Cuts-Military-Pensions-Right-for-America”]

Law Would Brand Speed-trap Towns with Colored Signs

Posted on February 24th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Speed-limit-signA great idea out of Tennessee that didn’t make it past state legislators. A bill from 2006 would have required towns that generates more than half of its revenue from speeding tickets to use blue-colored speed limit signage. The motivation behind this bill was certain towns that intentionally lower speed limits to unreasonably low levels in order to generate more revenue from speeding tickets. This undermines the purpose of speed limits, which is supposed to be for public safety, not government revenue. But we all know how that goes.
