Selling or leasing out state property is being seriously considered in light of the financial crisis facing the state. We could sell the Jamestown and Pell Bridges, for example, to a private company that would operate them for us. The Central Landfill is another example of an asset that the state doesn't have to own or operate - and in this cases anybody else would run it better than the previous crew that wasted $75million in taxpayer money over the past decade.
Selling off state properties: good or bad? If selling peoperties could raise enough money on an ongoing basis to offset a rise in taxes, wouldn't that be prefereable?
