I just got the fiscal note back. It said the state alone spends $30,000.00 for bottled water a year. I don't think locals were added into that number.
I have gotten more negative comments and threats (tward the bill) about that one idea from fellow legislators then I have any other bill I have offered in all my years.
The way I look at it 30K is one more social worker to investigate a child abuse case that is currently not being investigated. The state currently does not investigate a large number of child abuse complaints. They don't have the staff. Possibly I should amend the bill to direct the money there.
It is all about choices.
