Another Idea for Governor Walker

When Scott Walker takes the reins, here's something he can do.

“Nevada Gov. Jim Gibbons launched an initiative petition Monday that would force union negotiations with state or local governments to be conducted in public. “Taxpayers have a right to know how tax money is being spent and why,” Gibbons said during a news conference in Carson City. The “Open Government Initiative Petition” removes exemptions, such as collective bargaining, from the state’s Open Meeting Law. Existing law requires only that final approval of a bargaining pact be conducted in open meeting.”

Those meetings would be VERY informative. Bring popcorn for eating (and some to throw...)
