Steven Reinhard: Extrapolate that

Extrapolate that

Regarding the June 28 article “Car tag agencies gain under Senate bill”: Sen. Ronald Rabin, one of the bill’s supporters, stated, “The fee hadn’t been increased in the last five, six, seven years, so it’s a fair way to recompense people at today’s rates as opposed to going back and assuming no growth in inflation. I think you ought to pay people who are doing work.” I would ask Rabin, then, what about paying our state employees and school teachers based on the same standard?
