HANK FORD: "THERE'S PLENTY OF REVENUE IN THE GREAT OUTDOORS"--The St. Lawrence County Conservative Party Chairman from Colton says if the state moved away from its leftist environmental agenda a little bit, it could see the money to fill budget gaps. Ford says canoes, kayaks, bicycles and other forms of non-motorized outdoor recreation, even hiking should be levied a user fee, the same way motorboats, four-wheel ATV's, motorcycles, and snowmobiles are. He says 'cutting down one lousy tree' per acre on every parcel of state-owned land, and harvesting the timber could generate hundreds of millions of dollars.
