Subject: Elimination of Outdated and Dormant Boards and Commissions

In the near future I plan to introduce legislation to remove a number of state boards or commissions that have been underutilized or have become outdated and never were repealed or sunset. These boards or commissions listed below have failed to meet for years and in most cases no longer issue reports for us to see any progress in their work. This equates to “cleaning out the closet.”

The following boards and commissions would be eliminated in my proposed legislation:

• Interstate Rail Passenger Advisory Council
• Pennsylvania Public Television Network Commission
• Canine Health Board
• Community Service Advisory Board
• Industrial Resource Center Strategic Advisory Board
• Small Business Advocacy Council
• Adult Basic and Literacy Education Interagency Coordinating Council (ABLE ICC)
• Advisory Committee on Probation
• Energy Development Authority
• Health Careers Leadership Council
• Joint Committee to Review Cost of Living
• Legislative Representative for Collective Bargaining
• Lobbying Disclosure Regulations Committee
• Pennsylvania Quality Leadership Awards Council
• Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Advisory Committee
• Voting Standards Development Board

During our efforts to restructure and streamline Pennsylvania we should be looking at every aspect of right-sizing government. I believe this legislation is an affirmative step in that direction. Please join me in this effort and consider co-sponsoring this legislation.
