Jon Hanian, press secretary for Gov. Butch Otter, just released this statement about the governor’s work to eliminate or consolidate state commissions, including the Women’s Commission:
“We have been studying the idea of consolidating the administration of a number of commissions – including the Women’s Commission – as a way to save money. We have been working with Senator Broadsword and others on that effort. However, we will support whatever the Legislature decides to do as it works toward our shared goal of improving the efficiency and effectiveness of state government.”
