Streamlining commission accepts first recommendations

The Commission on Streamlining Government accepted the first list of recommendations to make Louisiana government more efficient and less costly.

Among the suggestions are proposals to reduce the number of state employees and the number of state vehicles; plans to increase the employee-to-management ratio in the Department of Social Service; efforts to consolidate and/or outsource certain state services and operations in the areas of social services, mental health, public health units and accounts receivables across state agencies.

The next step is to allow time for the public to comment on the proposals. Citizens can view the full list of accepted recommendations at the Streamlining Government Commission Web site.
