|To:||All Senate members|
|Subject:||Streamlining Government Operations|
|I will soon be reintroducing legislation from last session to merge functions of the state government.
I continue to hear frustration from constituents regarding the inordinate size of our state government and the bloated number of agencies and bureaucracies.
As a result of those concerns, I am proposing the following mergers:
Merger of the Budget Office, Department of General Services, Office of Administration and the Governor's Office of Policy & Planning; and
Merger of the Department of Labor & Industry with functions from the Department of Community & Economic Development and the Department of State
The consolidation of state bureaucracies will enhance the delivery of government services to residents, reduce taxpayer costs, and streamline redundant programs.
I hope you will join me as a co-sponsor.
Introduced as SB1089
