FINDING MORE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY, BUT NOT IN BROWNSVILLE

FROM CNN

"The Supreme Court of California released this statement, "Due to the unprecedented statewide fiscal crisis, the Supreme Court of California, the Courts Appeal, and all superior courts will be closed the third Wednesday of every month, beginning September 16, 2009."

The California Judicial Council stated, " The closures of all courts one day a month, starting in September, will result in savings of about $94.3 million on a statewide basis. The court closures are part of several Judicial Council actions to mitigate an unprecedented $414 million in budget reductions for the entire judicial branch."

I spoke with Kyle Henley (California Resident) who had not heard about the court closure and had taken off work, traveled 30 minutes, and paid for parking to do business with the courts. And then I spoke with restaurant owner Miguel Diaz. His restaurant is connected to the San Diego courts and has no business. Check out what they have to say."

How much could Cameron County save if they were to do this? Our courts are so inefficient. They could still get just as much work done if they tried.
