To the Editor,

Our legislators have had a large surplus of our tax dollars for the past six years. The legislators (both Republican and Democrat) have been on a spending spree, which in the last ten years has doubled the states budget.

The good times have stopped rolling and the legislatures excessive spending has left Minnesota with a two billion dollar deficit. Now they want to shift part of that burden on cities and counties, which will mean high taxes for all of us.

The governor wants to allot millions of dollars to the DNR this year. Just two years ago our legislators allowed the DNR to raise the cost of our fishing and hunting licenses, which gave them an additional six million dollars; in addition they then allotted the DNR twenty five million of lottery sales tax dollars (which should have gone into the general fund).

In this time of budget deficits and sour economy, DNR Commissioner Allen Garber (and other department heads) need to be cutting or freezing their irresponsible spending, not increasing it.

If our legislators cannot understand this, then maybe its time to send some new people to St. Paul who will use some common sense thinking and do something about the ill-advised spending of our tax dollars.
