Saving Mountains of Money by Privatizing State Operations

New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie is unveiling plans to save that fiscally troubled state $210 annually by privatizing such current state operations as motor vehicle inspections, state parks and turnpike toll booths.  We’re looking at closing state parks to save money.  Why not let an entrepreneur show what he/she can do to keep a park open, create some jobs and maybe turn a buck or two of profit?  Golf courses–same idea.  Garbage collection, street cleaning, servicing public vehicle fleets–if Jersey can do it with their morass of union connections and entrenched bureaucrats, a smaller state like New Mexico should at least be able to try some test privatization to see if it works better.
