Privatization at Work in Kansas City
The Kansas City Star has a nice article about a soon-to-be-decided proposal that would privatize the Kansas City Animal Shelter. From the article, it sounds like this bill, which would turn management over to a private vet clinic, is expected to pass soon. This seems like an exciting example of privatization at work in Missouri. Hopefully, it will work out as well as privatization of the county pharmacy did for St. Louis County. The animal shelter bill is expected to save taxpayers $175,000 per year, but I am sure the animals would rather be taken care of by government employees than be subjected to the cold, hard hands of capitalism.
