Quinn plan would save trooper jobs, but not posts � Evansville Courier & Press

Quinn plan would save trooper jobs, but not posts � Evansville Courier & Press

The plan is to take up to $10 from the money that goes into the county funds currently and put it into a special account for the state police.

I did not know the break down of the fees for tickets, but it's a little shocking that tickets were not already partially being used to fund police activities directly.

The bigger problem I see with this is that every level of government is out of money and not able to pay their bills, this will pull an additional $10 from every ticket away from counties making it even harder on local governments.
