Fischer Probably Likes This Idea

Our friend and royal environmentalist, James Rowen, tells us of a brilliant scheme by Republican State Senator Mary Lazich. She wants to set up a search engine so that taxpayers can see where every payment of $100 or more goes to. I can't even imagine how much that system would cost to get it up and running, fix the errors, and then maintain it.

The kicker is James' last paragraph of his post:
About the only good thing about her idea is that certain legislative staffers and their bosses wouldn't have to answer all those pesky questions about state spending from constituents, leaving more free time to blog and chit-chat about politics and do lots of other cool stuff at the State Capitol.
Now, I wonder what would make James think anything like that is going on in Lazich's office?
