closer look. >> happy holiday. i hope you inventors are paying attention because if you can figure out how to fix a government problem, there may be $25,000 in it for you. last friday, they created three prizes of 25,000 a piece for people who come up with creative solutions for california's problems. the government would select three agencies and in each of those agencies, they would solicit pro've proposals from californians only californians to resolve an issue like cutting down lines at the dmv and the winner would get $25,000 plus the love of the state, a nobel peace prize if you can solve that dmv thing. and mike gatt toe from los angeles got the idea from the book written by gavin nusome,
called citizenville. cash prizes solve problems, help people and save money. he also writes that prizes are something both parties are support and so far, that does appear to be the case because it doesn't pass unanimously. amazing. >> it is amazing. what would they bottom surprised for? >> it needs to be something it cannable. or patentable. it needs to be like an app or computer program or blueprint. those would qualify. >> does everybody do this? >> the federal government embraced this. since 2011, they've been doing this a lot and a study showed recently that in 2013, 25 federal agencies gave prizes for south solution . my favorite is an example of the telecommunication.
it stopped no more. it's now going to go in the senate and probably be signed into law because, like i said, there's no real opposition to it. so if you are at a memorial day barbecue this afternoon and your uncle, always an uncle, starts going on and on how to fix sacramento for once, it might be a good idea to listen. >> you know what surprises necessity? did gavin really write a book or has people coit for them? >> he seem fob knowledgeable. if he worked with a team. he'd work close with that. >> he's pretty nerdy. i think he's legit. >> peter: thank thank you. the latest move to gets the care they deserve. >> the search for survivors next. ,,,,,,,,,,,,
