More Government Reform from Virginia

In 2010 Executive Order 2 was signed  by Virginia’s Governor creating the Governor’s Commission on Government Reform and Restructuring.  Gov. McDonnell has billed the Commission with identifying opportunities for creating a more efficient government, exploring news ways to deliver state services and perform core government functions, and to examine ways that the state government can be more transparent and user-friendly.

In their Report to the Governor in November of 2011, the Commission describes numerous suggestions for reforming Virginia’s government by reforming health and human resources, administration, commerce and trade, natural resources, finance, and other miscellaneous recommendations including consolidating juvenile corrections departments and addressing federal mandates.  Under each topic for reform the Commission describes several recommendations and discusses their proposed effect.
