The State of Florida is looking for something. 18,000 buildings that it owns, but doesn’t seem to be able to put their hands on right now:
The State of Florida is looking for help finding something you’d think would be hard to lose: approximately 18,000 buildings, owned by the taxpayers of Florida, that state officials can’t quite put their fingers on. What’s more, state officials say they don’t have the people to hunt them down, so they want to use tax money to hire an outside company to find each building Florida has misplaced.
Could there be any better example of how government has gotten too big? And this is just 1 of 50 states. And if the Federal Government were asked to produce a list of all the buildings it owns?
But remember – government is short of money – they always, always, always, always need more.
