Governor Creates Commission to Look at Restructuring Government

Missouri's governor Matt Blunt today created a commission to look for inefficiencies in state government.

Missy Shelton reports.

The 20 member State Government Review Commission will evaluate the efficiency of all state executive departments.

Governor Matt Blunt says he wants the commission to determine what changes are needed.

Blunt says the commission will consider a wide range of options for restructuring government, including the abolition of university governing boards and the creation of one statewide board to govern all institutions of higher education.

Blunt says the commission has one year to develop its report and recommendations.
