What would be of interest, is how the budget constraints they seek to alleviate, have effected, as they have in the private sector, the jobs, wages and benefits of the DNR employees. I think the biggest problem most people have with higher fees/taxes/etc., is that while they do with less, government just keeps on growing. Or, to put it another way, if we're all in this together, how come we're the only ones making sacrifices?

That's a discussion that I think needs to take place before any action to raise fees/taxes/etc. happens. Not just on this issue, but on all issues, at all levels of government.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
