Report on slimming gov’t needs time
Among the bills the General Assembly will tackle in the lame-duck session next month will be extending the deadline for a report on how to pare down the state’s almost 7,000 units of government.
The Local Government Consolidation Commission created and chaired by state Rep. Jack Franks was supposed to deliver its report by the end of the year. But a bill asks to push back the deadline to Sept. 30 because of a large amount of information and a late start blamed on leaders being slow to appoint the commission’s 17 members.
The commission is advisory only and has no enforcement power.
