Under the Dome

On the Budget: Doug Berger

Doug BergerSen. Doug Berger
Youngsville Democrat
Third Term

What two things would you cut in the state budget?  He said there could be savings in merging worker safety programs in the Industrial Commission and the state Department of Labor.

He also said there was a lot of duplication in education programs, such as anti-smoking efforts, in the Department of Health and Human Services.

Are there any taxes you would be in favor of increasing? He said additional revenue could be found in removing the sales tax cap on the purchase of automobiles.

Thank YOU Dome!

It is really interesting and helpful to see where the rank and file legislators stand on the budget crisis. Too often we hear only from the 3 or 4 people that actually run the legislature.
