Regarding yesterday's post on HB 1522, a bill to merge the Department of Business Assistance and the Virginia Economic Development Partnership, which would save taxpayers nearly $400,000 per budget cycle, a very informed source notified us today that some with knowledge of the two agencies think the savings will be significantly higher than that. It shows again the slanted nature of the so-called economic impact statements filed by the Department of Planning and Budget with legislation that affects state revenues (i.e., your tax money) and spending: Bills to deprive the leviathan its source of sustenance (i.e., your tax money), always are draconian and doomsday; bills to feed the beast (increase your cost of government) are minimal. Thus the outcry by Delegate Dwight Jones (D-70, Richmond) yesterday: It's always too much government to cut, it's never enough to tax.
