Our brand-new Governor, Matt Blunt, gave his State of the State address tonight, and he showed once again that he means to streamline the bureaucracy that has plagued our state. If you'd like to see what I mean, you can read the highlights of his proposals, one of which was to cut state employees by at least 1,000 people. The ones who remain, except for elected officials, would get a one percent pay increase. Governor Blunt has done more since he took office than Bob Holden did the entire time he was there. He's as good a man as his father, Rep. Roy Blunt. I got to meet them all several years ago, when Sir Mugley ran for state office. They are genuine, and determined to make life better for everyone they can. Let's see if the state legislature will work with him.
