A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

RED TAPE STATE

A new BIG State of Texas report reveals agencies there issue too many reports.

The 668-page report from the Library and Archives Commission outlines reports from more than 170 state agencies and public colleges and universities. The commission spent 18 months compiling the more than 1,600 reports, and members think there are still more to be found.


Initial findings indicate that there are more than 400 report requirements that are obsolete, duplicates or not needed.

It is estimated that thousands of dollars could be saved in staff hours as well as tons of paper.

The commission says it has just begun to assess the report requirements one by one and expects it will take another year to complete the study.

At which time, I suspect there will be another report.

Reminiscent of all of the committees and special sub-committees of the Congress and Senate...more government waste. I wonder if one of those Texas reports is about the environmental impact of wasted resources used for excessive government reports.
Things are always bigger in Texas it seems.
