Letter: Solution to the budget crunch

Here are my thoughts on how to fix the fiscal deficit: Give everyone who is eligible for the dividend $100,000 and the Legislature can have the rest. If invested wisely, this will allow for perpetuity and a person can do a lot with it. Pay off a mortgage, school loans and allow one to be debt free for the remainder of your life. It would insure that the programs already in place are funded and give the powers that be enough working capital to finance future projects to fund the states economy.
