Black and white copies ‘work just fine’

State Agriculture Director Celia Gould described her department’s zero-based budgeting exercise in her budget presentation to lawmakers this year, stressing frugality. “I planned to cover budget highlights,” she told JFAC. “However, highlights is probably not a good word to use for anything headed our way in 2010.” Senate Finance Chairman Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, complimented Gould for not providing the lawmakers with a ton of paper copies of the various reports and documents she cited. “We’ve been a little surprised at the number of copies, and particularly the number of color copies,” Cameron told Gould. “I notice that yours are black and white. They work just fine.”
