State legislators seem to be looking
for excuses to dodge the recommendation in the Kernan-Shepard report to eliminate township-level government.
This wasnâ??t unexpected. Township officials often are close friends and political allies of legislators, so the legislators
donâ??t want to send them to unemployment lines.
Whatâ??s curious is why voters havenâ??t demanded more from their senators and representatives. Most Hoosiers are hunkered down
and trying to save money, so why wouldnâ??t legislators get ear-fulls about government doing its part to streamline?
Have voters decided theyâ??re willing to pay more for government rather than risk a government they fear would become too centralized?
