These fucking politicians never quit.
Politician 1: Oh shit we’ve got a $800 million budget short
Politician 2: What do we do?
1: Should give incentives for corporations and small businesses to flock here and produce jobs producing more tax revenue?
2: Nah, fucking just take their money with more useless restrictive speeding tickets.

According to the bipartisan legislation, windfall revenues would be split between the state and the towns or cities that issue tickets.
