Budget humor: Rename trust funds?
In Senate General Government appropriations, there was a discussion about whether someone could donate to trust funds to replenish them, say for marine animals, and whether such a contribution would be tax deductible.
Sen. Chairman Carey Baker said he didn't know why anyone would donate to a trust fund, knowing there's a good chance the money would go for something else.
"Where's the trust?" asked Sen. Steve Oelrich.
"We should, maybe, consider changing the names of those to ... the 'not-as-trusting' trust funds?" Baker said.
