Why California is broke: California government does not ‘shop’ for best price for i-Pads for senior workers. www.nbcsandiego.com/
Gov. Jerry Brown made a big deal of taking cell phones and cars away from most state workers last year, but over at the state Department of Insurance 31 senior staffers are getting iPads – for about $1,000 per device.
The iPad 2s were handed out as part of a pilot program to “increase efficiency” and enhance the department’s “paperless/green initiatives,” according to department spokesman Byron Tucker.
They forgot about the excess “green” it costs when they buy with other people’s money.
