Make that 40,000,000.00 Texas FLDS Dollars

And government estimates of cost can always be relied on to do one thing. Go up.

The Houston Chronicle
- AUSTIN — "State lawmakers started adding up Tuesday the "extraordinary" costs related to the raid on a polygamist sect's ranch last month and began trying to figure out where to find the expected $30 million the case will eventually cost over the next year."

"Over the next year" means "apart from what we've already spent which you think is $10,000,000.00 but is probably a lot more." Anyone care to guess if this is going to end up costing $100,000,000.00 in the end not counting lawsuits that may result? Remember Texas taxpayer. The state has NOTHING and they just busted up one of the biggest taxpayers in one county.
