State Government Restructuring Task Force to Hold First Meeting in Santa Fe
The Government Restructuring Task Force will meet in Room 307 of the State Capitol in Santa Fe at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, April 21, 2010. The public is welcome to attend.
“The purpose of this initial meeting will be to develop a plan to consider reorganization of state government into the most efficient and effective one possible,” said Rep. Luciano “Lucky” Varela (D-Santa Fe-48) in a written statement. After selection of the chair and vice-chair of the committee, the group will hear a summary of House Bill 237, sponsored by Representative Varela, which created the task force.
“This committee will determine ways to better serve New Mexicans. We are committed to saving New Mexico money by making state government leaner and more efficient,” said Rep. Al Park (D-Bernalillo-26).
The group will study the structure and funding of New Mexico government, as well as previous restructuring initiatives. A number of other states have made efforts at restructuring in recent years, and the group will look at a summary of these efforts. A work plan and future meeting schedule will be established. As always, public comment is welcome and encouraged.
