And that's been the case the last few

Last year, the state went over budget

The year before, it was nearly 100

by more than two million dollars last
year.

some cuts like grass cutting and other
maintenance.

But the story may be different next
spring.

So far this year, V-Dot has spent
only about a million dollars of the
10.8 million budgeted for local snow
removal.

If the mild winter continues, cuts
may not be necessary, that's the hope
at least.

Democrats are all for giving
Americans more of a say and more
choices

when it comes to their retirement
savings. But that doesn't mean taking

Social Security9s guarantee and
gambling with it. And that's coming
from

a Senator who represents Las Vegas.

THE PRESIDENT ALSO MADE THE CASE
FOR SIMPLIFYING THE TAX CODE,

PLACING CAPS ON MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
LAWSUITS AND OVERHAULING THE

NATION'S IMMIGRATION LAWS.

It is time for an immigration
policy that permits temporary guest

workers to fill jobs americans will not
take, that rejects amnesty, that

tells us who is entering and leaving
our country and that closes the

border to drug dealers and terrorist.

PRESIDENT BUSH CONTINUED HIS
MARCH TOWARD FREEDOM ACROSS THE


WORLD---- URGING CONGRESS TO SUPPORT


HIS BUDGET REQUEST FOR $80 BILLION

MORE TO DEFEAT WHAT HE CALLS, "THE
DANGERS OF OUR TIME."

Our generational commitment to
the advance of freedom, especially in
the

Middle East, is now being tested and
honored in Iraq. That country is a

vital front in the war on terror, which
is why the terrorists have

chosen to make a stand there.
