The Indiana Department of Natural Resources decided to replace its glossy, 44-page, color Indiana Fishing Guide with a six-page, green and white pamphlet. The cost went from about $100,000 to less than $20,000:
"We took out a lot of feature stories and advertising," said Phil Bloom, director of communications for the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

The 2010 pamphlet still has the basic rules and regulations anglers need to follow. For people who want more, including some features and more information about specific species and locations, Bloom said the agency is working to put more online, at www.in.gov/dnr.
See there, that wasn't so hard, was it? Only $80,000 saved, sure, but that's just for one thing in one division of one department. Imagine if everyone in state government followed that example.
