Mo. Senate seeks ideas for streamlining government

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Senate is looking for suggestions on ways to streamline state government.

The Senate has launched a Web site called "Rebooting Government" for people to submit their ideas. But the comments will have to come with a name, because anonymous suggestions are not accepted.

The Senate Web site is a takeoff on the "control-alternate-delete" key combination for rebooting a computer.

Senate President Pro Tem Charlie Shields says lawmakers are open to any ideas to make government smaller and more efficient - whether through more control, alterations or deletions.

Missouri's tax revenues were down 12.7 percent through the first two-thirds of its fiscal year, and Gov. Jay Nixon has warned that government will have to be restructured.
