I believe that fiscal responsibility on the part of government agencies is important at all levels (e.g. local, state, national). However, this is taking things a bit too far in my opinion:

ROCKVILLE, Md.

Labor leaders are recommending that Montgomery County ration toilet paper for inmates to help save costs. The request comes as council members try to resolve a $297 million budget deficit.

The president of the union that represents Montgomery County government employees has given council members a six-page memo of recommended budget cuts suggested by some of the workers.

The recommendations include limiting inmates to two or three rolls of toilet paper a week. Union officials say inmates often deliberately clog toilets to cause problems at detention centers, wasting taxpayer money on both the toilet paper and the cost of fixing toilets.

The director of Montgomery County’s department of corrections says he doesn’t find the use of toilet paper excessive.

I can’t help but wonder if the ACLU will let this happen.  Previous events make me think ABW might want to consider a similar limit in her home though!
