Government jobs are not jobs. They are paid by taxes, not economic activity. I guess the definition of "sanity" has wiggle room, as well...
It is not the right economic climate in this state to expand the duties of any part of state government!
Great! Another special class, probably more special holidays etc. When will the politicians quit kissing asses and designating special holidays etc to get votes. Don't forget to name some streets and highways after Cesar Chavez. Maybe Hugo Chavez,too while you're add it. You louses have no shame.
