Ohio BMV stamps 1 million new plates, decides NOT to issue

Okay, so the Strickland administration decided Ohio needed a new look for our license plates. A basic design was created, Mrs. Taxin' Ted made some changes, and the design was finalized. Apparently the Ohio BMV created over 1 MILLION sets of plates, because we were going to go through a mandatory "replate". Personally I think this was a good idea, because many older plates are no longer reflective, rusty, and illegible. Most states do have some kind of mandatory replating after 5 to 10 years.

2009 Piglet Book now available

The Washington-based Citizens Against Government Waste and Ohio-based Buckeye Institute put together the 2009 Piglet book on wasteful government spending which is now available on the Buckeye Institute Web site.
Two examples of local questions:
Kroger received almost 400k to open a store in Lucas County.
Someone in Lima got 500k to open a Chuck E. Cheese. Now anyone who knows about Chuck E. Cheese knows the government had to approve this, especially given the recent comparisons of the chain to Hell's Angels Biker clubs.

Ohio House Votes to Implement Freeway Photo Radar

Of course this is only for saftey.

The program allows the state to lower the speed limit in "construction zones" on freeways so long as there is one designated worker present. A private, for-profit company will station speed camera vehicles in these zones to photograph motorists and generate a $250 ticket -- plus an unspecified fee -- mailed up to ninety days after the alleged offense took place.

Kasich Announces 88 County Leadership Team
