Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: January 6, 2022 02:57 PM
From: Senator Doug Mastriano
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
