Reward those that come in under budget

Why do we scramble to spend every penny of what we have been budgeted. There needs to be an incentive for returning funds back to the tax payer. Right now there is a fear that if we don't spend our budget, we won't get the same budget next year. I propose enlisting a program that rewards an agency that strives to save and return money back to the tax payer. This can easily be done by guaranting they will at least get the same budget plus a percentage of the returned money on top of that. A percentage of the saved money can even go to rewarding employees for their efforts. Everyone wins. There is so much unneccessary spending every year.


I also think it is time to back to one appropriation to all facilities greater flexibility with their funds.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
