State Representative Gene Whisnant has a plan to save the State $225 million. He says many state positions are funded; yet remain unfilled for more than six months. Whisnant introduced his reform bill on Monday. “I think it’s a wake up call, not good management practices.” Whisnant says freeing up those funds from unfilled positions would allow lawmakers to put more money toward public safety and education and other services.
