The governor's Government Review Commission met for the first time today. KSMU's Missy Shelton reports.
Governor Matt Blunt had charged the 20 member commission with evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of state government.
He addressed the commission during its first meeting.
A Republican and Democrat are co-chairing the commission.
Warren Erdman is the Republican co-chair.
During the commission's first meeting, he told Blunt the commission is ready to take on the task of evaluating the structure of state government.
The commission will look at the structure of state government as well as the number of employees in each department.
Governor Blunt says he does expect the commission's recommendations to result in a net reduction of state employees.
But Blunt says the commission's focus is not on looking for ways to lay off state workers.
The commission has one year to complete its work and present the governor with its report for changing state government.
