Cost cutting measures

Gov. M. Joid Rell on Friday issed an executive order to trim the state's motor vehicle fleet. Only those state employees who travel more than 700 miles will be issued state vehicles.

The governor took the budget axe out again today, ordering state contracts for goods and services to be canceled or reduced....and the phasing out of deputy commissioner positions in state agencies.

On Wednesday, the Democratic leadership in the General Assembly wil get its chance to act on the state budget crisis. They'll take up the governor's to address the current $343 million (and climbing) deficit in this year's budget. Democrats have yet to put any plan of thier own to address revenue shortfalls.

Do you have, have you seen, a credible dollar figure for actual savings created by the Governor's actions?

How much is realism and how much is symbolism?

And how far do all of us have to go before both the real and perceived gaps are closed?
