Turn off copiers at the end of the day, use only compact flourescents or LED builbs and turn off lights; lower air conditioning.Ask Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood for help finding transportations funds to restore the rest stop positions. The stimulus is supposed to preserve jobs and those rest stops are public safety issues for motorists.Eliminate subsidies for biotech businesses.Ask Obama for funds given to the banks to keep homeowners from foreclosure.Promote a buy local food campaign; keep telling hospitals and restaurants and consumers to buy from local farms and farmers markets; that could be a lot of revenue for the state, and healthy food creates healthypeople and lowers health care costt.Promote holistic medicine to also lower health care costs; a 1995 State of Maryland Legislative Study compared allopathic with holistic remedies, and the holistic outperformed the allopathic in every category--efficacy,safety, outcome, side effects (none for holistic treatments) and cost.Focus on preventive health by reducing the chemicals assaults we confront in our consumer products. Reduce the use of chemicals and mowing on state land by promoting watershed and pollinator friendly parks andyards that capture stormwater and attract and feed pollinators. These could lower costs.Do not fund any more new roads, and defund the ICC (the Purple Line should be underground so the land will be available for businesses and vibrant economic development, as with the Courthouse Square Metro.Eliminate the million dollar gypsy moth spraying; Rhode Island stopped spraying in the 1970s when lobsters started to die from the chemicals sprayed, the same ones the Dept of Ag is using in Maryland--how STUPID.What kills lobsters can kill crabs--DUH.Defund the ICC. No more new roads. We can still save pristine parkland needed for the health of the Bay and billions of dollars if you defund the ICC.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxDefund the ICC
