    OK, now call me stupid but just what the Hell is the logic behind requiring CA lawmakers to track the Australian kangaroo harvest in the first place? WTF??? And what are the other 717 unnecessary bureaucratic reports that are to be eliminated????

    No need for kangaroo harvest reports: California governor

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - California lawmakers won't be briefed any longer on kangaroo harvests in Australia under a plan to scrap more than 700 reports required by state law that Governor Jerry Brown unveiled on Tuesday.

    Australia's annual kangaroo harvest report, which California's Department of Fish and Game is required to track and provide to lawmakers, is one of 718 "unnecessary bureaucratic" reports discovered in audits of state agencies and departments ordered by Brown in December, according to a statement from his office.

    Eliminating the reports would help make California's government more efficient, the Democratic governor of the most populous U.S. state said in the statement.

    "It wastes a lot of time and money to write, track and file these reports," Brown said. "Government should be focused on providing information that is actually helpful to taxpayers, not on checking boxes to meet outdated bureaucratic requirements."
