Phil Bredesen: Some State Jobs are Fossils

Maybe we should do a little more digging and find MORE fossils. In fact, maybe we should get Indiana Jones to lead an expedition into the deepest darkest regions of State Government so taxpayers won't continue paying for other fossils.

"There are some positions that are just leftover fossils from some previous something or other that now are getting identified."

His comments came shortly before state finance commissioner Dave Goetz held a capitol hill update on the $50-million dollar voluntary buyout package that will save 64-Million dollars in next years state budget by eliminating 2000 state government jobs.
