The Goldwater Institute has produced 100 ideas for the new year and I just love idea #2. "Allow private companies to assume the full responsibility of promoting Arizona as a tourist destination by eliminating public funds for the Tourism Authority." The government of the State of Arizona is facing a $1 billion budget deficit.
I think zeroing out government funded advertising for tourism is a great idea (let private business advertise, they know best where the best return on investment is - government doesn't). I hope my state representatives David Shapira and Ed Ableser give this some serious consideration.
